[Coppa Italia] Genoa march on

Genoa eased into the fourth round of the Coppa Italia thanks to a comfortable 3-1 win against Mantova.

Genoa 3-1 MantovaThe Serie A outfit proved far too strong for their second tier opponents as they put on a show for the Rossoblu faithful.

Uruguayan striker Ruben Olivera was the architect of the win, putting in an eye-catching performance.

Gian Piero Gasperini's men took the lead on 20 minutes through Olivera, before he doubled their advantage a minute before the break.

The hosts then wrapped up the win with a third from Omar Milanetto on 78 minutes.

Mantova did pull one back in second half stoppage time through Dario Passoni, but it was to be nothing more than a consolation.

Sassuolo 1-0 ReggianaMeanwhile, a battle between two reigning champions ended in Sassuolo emerging as 1-0 winners at home to Reggiana.

Sassuolo won the third tier title last season, while their opponents took the fourth division crown.

However, it was the hosts who took the spoils when Emiliano Salvetti snatched a late winner on 85 minutes.
