Lazio overcame ten-man AC Milan 2-1 in extra time on Wednesday to advance to the Italian Cup quarter-finals. Milan had Brazilian star Emerson sent off in the 69th minute, but they still took the lead at San Siro through Andriy Shevchenko in the 77th minute.
Lazio levelled in the dying moments when Giuseppe Favalli brought down Goran Pandev and Argentine Mauro Zarate scored from the penalty spot for his first goal since 9 November. Pandev grabbed the winner in the second minute of extra-time when he followed up a snapshot from Zarate, which had been parried by Milan keeper Dida, to score and secure Lazio's first win over Milan at San Siro in five years. They will now face either Fiorentina or Torino for a place in the semi-finals.
