Coppa: Genoa thank Pinilla

Genoa earned a Coppa Italia victory away to Virtus Lanciano thanks to Mauricio Pinilla.

The 1-0 result means the Grifone go through to the Fourth Round of the competition.

There they will face the winners of today’s Empoli-L’Aquila match.

It was far tougher than expected for Gian Piero Gasperini’s men, who only broke through thanks to a Pinilla penalty after Yago Falque was brought down.

Both goalkeepers were forced into saves during a surprisingly close-run game.
