Novara set up Lazio meeting

Novara grabbed a last-gasp 3-2 win over Pisa in the Coppa Italia, to set up a Last 16 trip to the Stadio Olimpico to face Lazio.

The visitors took the lead early on through Michele Marconi, but Diego Peralta equalised just six minutes later.

Davide Bove put the Biancoazzurri ahead after 53 minutes, but they were pegged back by Francesco Lisi.

It appeared the match would be heading to extra-time, but Jacopo Manconi turned on-loan Bologna youngster Fabrizio Brignani in the 91st minute before firing it past Stefano Gori in the Pisa goal.

The Piedmontese side will now face Lazio in the Last 16.
