AC Milan bid farewell to Coppa Italia football competitions, with a fatal defeat to absent hosts Torino in the second half of extra time, 1-0, at the San Siro stadium in the last group on Wednesday.
The hosts start strong and take the lead on more than one occasion, between retreats from Turin and timid attempts to attack.
However, the offensive efficiency saw the sterility in scoring during the two halves, so the two teams resorted to two additional halves.
The first-half scenario repeated itself in the second half, but this time Torino dealt me a heavy blow, with their Ivorian defender Kofi Djeji sent off for a second yellow card in the 70th minute, but with ten players, Torino remained firm in front of the Milan and dragged him into two extra times.
And with lackluster attacks that didn’t bear fruit in the first extra half, the slap came from Torino in the 114th minute, when Frenchman Michel Ndari Adobo scored the winning goal for the visitors, to pass to the quarter-finals, and the Turin in the quarterfinals meet Sampdoria or Fiorentina, who face each other on Thursday.
