Coppa: Lazio and Di Natale show

Lazio crushed Bassano 7-0, while Verona, Cesena, Empoli, Sampdoria and Udinese also won in the Coppa Italia.

The Third Round concluded this evening and the next games won’t be played until December.

Lazio were booed off the field at half-time in an almost-empty Stadio Olimpico as it was still 0-0 against Lega Pro side Bassano del Grappa.

However, they got out of neutral after the break to eventually win 7-0 as new signings Stefan de Vrij, Dusan Basta and Marco Parolo were all on target.

Hellas Verona swept Cremonese aside 3-0, while an Eder hat-trick allowed Sampdoria to flatten Como 4-1.

Serie A newcomers Cesena and Empoli saw off Casertana and L’Aquila respectively.

Antonio Di Natale remarkably scored four goals for Udinese to defeat Ternana 5-1.

In an all-Serie B battle, Brescia squeezed past Latina 1-0 with a last-gasp Andrea Caracciolo goal.
