Inter grab two-goal lead over Empoli in Coppa

MILAN, Jan 9 (Reuters) - Second-half strikes from Adriano and Ivan Cordoba gave holders Inter Milan a 2-0 win at Empoli in the first leg of their Italian Cup quarter-final on Tuesday.

Brazilian Adriano finished off Zlatan Ibrahimovic's long ball after 71 minutes before substitute Cordoba headed home in injury time.

Serie A leaders Inter, who have won the cup for the last two seasons, had the best chance of the first half when Patrick Vieira's header was nodded off the line by Empoli defender Lino Marzoratti.

Inter, who thumped Messina 5-0 on aggregate in the last round, included Saudi Arabia-bound Luis Figo in a strong lineup but the game lacked vigour as the players eased their way back after the Christmas break.

Sampdoria host Chievo and AS Roma entertain Parma in Wednesday's first legs while Serie B strugglers Arezzo visit AC Milan in their quarter-final first leg on Thursday.

The second legs take place next Wednesday and Thursday.
