AC Milan thrash Alessandria to book place in Coppa Italia final
AC Milan cruised into the Coppa Italia final following a 5-0 rout of third-division Alessandria on Tuesday.
Jeremy Menez and Alessio Romagnoli each scored twice and Mario Balotelli also found the target as the Rossoneri advanced 6-0 on aggregate following a penalty from Balotelli in the opening leg.
Menez set the tone when he beat the offside trap to put Milan ahead seven minutes in at the San Siro. Romagnoli doubled the lead from close range following a corner and Menez was left virtually uncontested to make it 3-0 before the break.
Romagnoli added another late in the second half that had to be validated with goal-line technology before Balotelli scored in the final seconds.
Juventus take a 3-0 lead into the other semifinal at Inter Milan on Wednesday.
