Palermo advanced to the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia 5-4 on penalties after their last eight clash with Parma finished goalless on Tuesday.

Hosts Palermo had the better openings in the 120 minutes but only prevailed after Francesco Valiani’s missed his spot-kick.

Sampdoria host Serie A leaders AC Milan on Wednesday, while holders Inter Milan go to Napoli in the third quarter-final later in the day. Juventus entertain AS Roma in the final last eight encounter on Thursday.
