AC Milan beat Torino on penalties at the Stadio San Siro on Tuesday evening after a scoreless draw after 120 minutes to progress to the quarter finals of the Coppa Italia.
Spaniards Samu Castillejo, Brahim Diaz and Theo Hernandez all featured for the Rossoneri, with the former Real Madrid full-back coming off the bench in the second half of the initial 90 minutes.
Goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic was Toro’s hero on the night, making a couple of important saves to keep the Granata in the tie, but Brahim should have done better when put one-on-one with the Serb, somehow sending a shot over the crossbar when he had the entire near side of the goal free.
The keeper even stepped up in the shootout, scoring Torino’s fifth after Tomas Rincon had his attempt saved by Ciprian Tatarusanu, but Milan scored each of their five from the spot to advance.
Inter play Fiorentina on Wednesday afternoon, with the winner meeting Milan in the last eight.
