Racist chants heard as Lazio set up Roma clash

Miilan: Serie A high-fliers Lazio will meet city rivals AS Roma in the Italian Cup last 16 after Edy Reja`s reserve side beat second division Albinoleffe 3-0 in the fourth round on Thursday.

The game was marred though by sporadic racist chants from Lazio fans towards visiting goalkeeper Stefano Layeni, the latest in a series of episodes which Italian soccer had hoped were consigned to the past.

Maxi Lopez scored twice to help Catania hammer Brescia 5-1 at home and seal a tie with Juventus next month when last term`s top eight from Serie A enter the much-maligned Cup.

Bologna will meet Napoli in the last 16 after a 3-0 win at fellow top flight side Cagliari in Thursday`s other game.

Genoa striker Luca Toni, who scored two late goals to down Grosseto in round three, repeated the trick in Wednesday`s 3-1 extra-time win over Serie B side Vicenza to set up a meeting with holders Inter Milan while Udinese beat Lecce 2-1.

The rest of the fourth round fixtures take place next week.
