Coppa: Piatek poker for Genoa

A star is born, as Krzysztof Piatek scored four goals when Genoa demolished Lecce in the Coppa Italia Third Round tie.

The 23-year-old Polish talent arrived from Cracovia Krakow at a cost of €4m this summer and already looks like a huge bargain.

He single-handedly set up their next Coppa clash with either Virtus Entella or Salernitana in December.

It took all of 70 seconds for Piatek to open his account with a header, then he dribbled round the goalkeeper to finish with his right foot.

The next two goals arrived before half-time, both with his head, to make short work of Lecce.

Genoa 4-0 Lecce

Piatek 2, 8, 17, 37 (G)
