Fiorentina wins 2-0 at Torino to reach Italian Cup quarters

TURIN, Italy (AP) — Federico Chiesa scored two late goals to send Fiorentina through to the quarterfinals of the Italian Cup.

Fiorentina won 2-0 at Torino on Sunday to book a spot in the next round, where it will face either Roma or third-division Virtus Entella.

There is another all-Serie A matchup later when Napoli hosts Sassuolo. Inter Milan was also playing later, against second-division Benevento.

In Turin, Fiorentina had the better of the chances but was denied several times by home goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu.

It finally broke through three minutes from time. Giovanni Simeone surged forward from the center circle and shrugged off two challenges only to have his effort parried by Sirigu but Chiesa tapped in the rebound.

Chiesa doubled his tally in stoppage time after taking advantage of an error by Torino defender Lyanco. The goal was given after video review.
