Napoli beat Inter Milan in Coppa Italia

30

Gonzalo Higuain scored deep into injury time to send holders Napoli through to the Italian Cup semifinals with a 1-0 victory over Inter Milan. Just as the match looked set to be heading for extra time, Higuain pounced in the fourth minute of stoppage time, taking advantage of a slip from Inter defender Andrea Ranocchia to latch onto a quick throw-in and curl into the far corner. Inter had gone closest when a Mauro Icardi snapshot hit the left upright in the 13 minute. Napoli next face Lazio in a two-legged semifinal as they bids to reach the final at the Stadio Olimpico for the second successive year. It means more misery for Inter after a dismal start to 2015, which has seen them win just one of their five league matches.
