(Reading time: 1 - 2 minutes)

AS Roma footballers were eliminated in the round of 16 of the Coppa Italia. In Tuesday's match, they lost to Spezia at home 2:4 after extra time.

      The Romans did not catch the introduction, with the thirteenth team of the Serie A table they lost after a quarter of an hour of the game 0: 2. However, Lorenzo Pellegrini reduced the penalty kick after a break, and in the second half Henrich Mchitarjan equalized. The turning point was the second minute of overtime, when the home team collected two red cards in quick succession. First, Gianluca Mancini, the defender, received a second yellow card, and 30 seconds later, the referee directly ruled out home goalkeeper Pau Lopez, who fouled Robert Piccoli. The guests took the lead, in the 107th minute, Daniele Verde scored and in the 119th minute he sealed the final 4: 2 with his second goal in the match Riccardo Saponara. It was the second failure for the "wolves" in a short time after they lost the league derby with Lazio 0: 3 in the league. Spezia will meet Naples in the quarterfinals, in which the Slovak national team midfielder Stanislav Lobotka is active.
