Coppa: Lazio crush Varese

Lazio eased to a 3-0 win over Varese in the Coppa Italia, with no place in the side for Miroslav Klose.

The German striker declared his unhappiness at a lack of first team action this week, but Aquile Coach Stefano Pioli opted to leave the 36-year-old on the bench for the entirety of the Cup tie.

An own goal from Milan-loanee Stefan Simic gave the Biancocelesti the lead on 24 minutes, before Filip Djordjevic doubled the advantage just two minutes later.

Midfielder Felipe Anderson put the game beyond the reach of the Leopardi in the 80th minute when he made it 3-0.

The result sees Lazio safely into the fifth round of the competition, where the likes of Roma and Juventus will enter the draw.
