Coppa: Parma and Empoli go through

Parma will face Lazio in the Coppa Italia Round of 16 after beating Serie B side Cosenza 2-1, but Empoli beat Brescia by default to set up a fixture with Napoli.

The Ducali had opened the scoring after 13 minutes with Juan Brunetta’s debut goal for the club, unleashing a right-foot finish after the Andreas Cornelius effort was charged down.

Cosenza equalised through Angelo Corsi, but moments later Brunetta found the back of the net again, this time using his left foot at the back post.

Parma will face Lazio in the Round of 16 in January.

The game between Empoli and Brescia was not played, as the Rondinelle had several COVID-19 cases and did not travel.

The victory will be handed to Empoli, who will then face Napoli in the Round of 16.
