ROME - A double by Colombian Brayan Perea handed holders Lazio a place in the Italian Cup quarter-finals yesterday as they beat fellow Serie A side Parma 2-1 in Rome.
Perea, 20, grabbed the winner in stoppage time for a virtually second-string Lazio side.
He had opened the score only for Frenchman Jonathan Biabiany to equalise for the visitors.
Lazio, who have won the trophy five times in the past 16 seasons, will play Napoli or Atalanta — who play last night — in the last eight.
Also on Wednesday, Mauro Tassotti will take charge of AC Milan's game against second-division La Spezia, although not even victory will boost his chances of having the job on a permanent basis.
Former Dutch international midfielder Clarence Seedorf announced earlier on Tuesday he had been hired as the replacement for Massimiliano Allegri, who was fired on Tuesday.
