Coppa: Torino and Cagliari shockers

There were several upsets in the Coppa Italia Third Round, as Cagliari, Torino, Genoa and Livorno went out to lower league teams.

Torino suffered a huge shock, falling 2-1 at home to recently relegated Pescara, as Ciro Immobile wiped out a Riccardo Maniero goal, but Antonino Ragusa netted the 57th minute winner.

Sampdoria needed a late Manolo Gabbadini brace in the final 19 minutes to get the better of Benevento. They’ll face Hellas Verona in the Fourth Round.

Chievo eased past Serie B side Empoli 2-0 and Alessandro Diamanti proved enough for Bologna to squeeze through against Brescia.

Sassuolo were forced into extra time at Novara, but emerged with a 3-1 victory thanks to Leo Pavoletti and summer signing Diego Farias.

Cagliari also went to 120 minutes, but spent most of it with 10 men as Daniele Dessena saw red before half-time.

Just as penalties seemed to be the only solution, Curiale popped up with the shock winner for Frosinone, bursting into the box to beat Michael Agazzi with a low drive.

Juve Stabia and Varese could not be separated from a 1-1 draw after extra time, so Varese emerged victorious on penalties and booked their next match against Parma.
