ROME: A late own goal by Parma goalkeeper Simone Colombi sent Lazio to the Italian Cup quarterfinals with a 2-1 win on Thursday (Friday in Manila).

Lazio will next play Atalanta in Bergamo on Jan. 27.

The match appeared to be heading for extra time when, in the final minute, Vedat Muriqi’s header came off the base of the right post and went in off Colombi.

Muriqi hit the post in the first half too, as did Andreas Pereira, moments before Lazio eventually took the lead in the 23rd minute when Marco Parolo headed in Pereira’s cross.

Parma could have leveled in the 72nd but Valentin Mihaila fired off the crossbar from point-blank range.

Mihaila did get the equalizer seven minutes from time when a through ball caught the Lazio defense napping and the Romanian beat goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha one-on-one to lift the ball into the bottom right corner.
