Coppa: Palermo humiliated

Palermo crashed out of the Coppa Italia with a shock 3-0 home defeat to Modena.

The Sicilians won the Serie B title last season, but were stunned 3-0 at home by the Canarini this evening.

Nicola Ferrari opened the scoring after just five minutes, while Stefano Beltrame and Andrea Schiavone completed the rout.

It is a humiliating setback for Palermo, whose Serie A campaign begins next weekend.

Meanwhile, Modena progress to the Fourth Round of the Coppa Italia, where they’ll face Cagliari or Catania.

Palermo 0-3 Modena

Scorers: Ferrari 5 (M), Beltrame 41 (M), Schiavone 87 (M)
