MILAN, Italy - Japanese international midfielder Keisuke Honda scored his first goal for AC Milan and Jose Callejon struck a double for Napoli as the Serie A giants sealed their places yesterday in the Italian Cup quarter-finals.

Honda's goal helped Milan see off second-tier La Spezia 3-1 while Callejon's double came in Napoli's 3-1 win over Atalanta.

Serie B side Siena stunned Catania 4-1 to also reach the last eight, with Lazio, Roma, Udinese, Fiorentina and Juventus winning their respective ties played previously.

Honda made his debut for Milan in Serie A last week when he came off the bench and came close to scoring in a 4-3 defeat to Sassuolo which prompted coach Massimiliano Allegri's sacking.

Caretaker coach Mauro Tassotti was in charge yesterday at the San Siro and gave Honda his first start. New coach, Dutchman Clarence Seedorf, arrived in time to see the second half.

Brazilian Robinho opened the scoring for the hosts on 28 minutes, with striker Giampaolo Pazzini doubling the lead three minutes later.
