Coppa Italia: Torino need extra time

Torino needed extra time to get past Lecce and reach the Coppa Italia Fourth Round, while Cagliari, Spezia and Cosenza also progressed.

Toro have one point from four Serie A games under coach Marco Giampaolo and the situation wasn’t much better in the Coppa Italia.

They had to come back from a Mariusz Stepinski opener to draw 1-1 with Lecce through defender Lyanco, deciding the fixture deep into extra time with Simone Verdi’s brace, including a penalty.

Torino will face Virtus Entella in the Fourth Round.

Cagliari squeezed past Cremonese thanks to a single goal from Paolo Pancrazio Faragò, who pounced on the rebound from a parried Adam Ounas effort.

The Sardinians will play Verona or Venezia in the next phase.

Daniele Verde was the star of the show for Spezia, who earned a 2-0 victory away to Cittadella thanks to his long-range strike and a cross accidentally put into the net by Benedetti, setting up the meeting with Bologna.

Cosenza beat Monopoli 2-1 and will face either Parma or Pescara next month.
