Lazio 3-0 Catania: Hernanes double fires Lazio into Coppa Italia semi-finals
Hernanes scored two goals to help Lazio claim a 3-0 win over Catania and reach the Coppa Italia semi-finals on Tuesday.
The Biancocelesti took the lead after 30 minutes when Stefan Radu scored a glancing header to notch his first goal of the season.
Catania emerged stronger after the break and went close with Sergio Almiron curling just over the bar after Hernanes lost possession in midfield.
However, the Brazilian made up for his mistake by helping Lazio double their lead when Sergio Floccari burst through the visitors' defence and cut the ball back from the by-line for him to tuck away.
That combination proved too much for Catania, with a tidy reverse pass from Floccari putting the 27-year-old through in stoppage time to complete his brace and secure an emphatic 3-0 victory.
Lazio will face the winner of Wednesday's clash between Juventus and AC Milan in the final four.
