There Lazio snatch the pass for i quarter-finals of the Italian Cupin the round of 16 victory 1-0 on Bologna. At the Olimpico the goal in the first half by Felipe Andersonspoiled by an error by the rossoblu defender Sosa who loses the ball by allowing a Pedro to serve the partner.

In the match of the moving memory of Sinisa Mihajlovic, flag of Lazio as a player and of Bologna as a coach, it is the biancocelesti who pass the round of 16 of the Italian Cup and thus fly to the quarterfinals. A goal by Felipe Anderson for Sarri’s men was decisive, spoiled by an error by the opposing defender Sosa. Ready to go and in the 11th minute Milinkovic-Savic headers inaccurately from a corner, then two minutes go by and Zaccagni shoots central after a nice personal percussion from the left, finally the Bologna defender Sosa risks a sensational own goal. However, it was only the appetizer for the Rossoblu’s 4, because the mess arrived in the 33rd minute when Pedro stole the ball from the naive Sosa in the area and served Felipe Anderson for the Biancoceleste 1-0. Bologna’s reaction is all in Orsolini’s shot, too high and from a tight angle. In the second half it was Milinkovic-Savic again and again with a header to come close to scoring at the start, then in the 70th minute Skorupski saved the result from the usual Felipe Anderson. Bologna that fails to react and start the final assault, Sarri’s men manage and get the most out of it with a limited success.
