Coppa: Cassano crushes Lecce

Antonio Cassano scored his first goal in a Parma jersey for their 4-0 Coppa Italia victory over Lecce.

The Ducali won comfortably at the Stadio Tardini and go through to the Fourth Round.

Lecce thought they had taken the lead early on, but Bogliacino was flagged offside with the ball in the back of the net.

Marco Parolo had a double opportunity desperately cleared, but Amauri finished it off to put Parma in front.

Fabrizio Miccoli attempted a lob from midfield and Amauri tested goalkeeper Perucchini.

Cassano created the second goal himself, as he was brought down for the penalty and converted it successfully.

Amauri and Jonathan Biabiany were just unable to get on the end of a Massimo Gobbi ball across the face of goal.

Gianni Munari also got his first goal in a Parma jersey on Amauri’s assist, while Raffaele Palladino met Biabiany’s cross for a fourth.

Parma 4-0 Lecce

Scorers: Amauri 21 (P), Cassano pen 52 (P), Munari 79 (P), Palladini 84 (P)
