Coppa Italia : Ibrahimovic goal seals AC Milan win over Torino

Zlatan Ibrahimovic of AC Milan celebrates 4-2 during the Italian Coppa Italia match between AC Milan v Torino at the San Siro on January 28, 2020 in Milan Italy.


Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his first goal at the San Siro since 2012 as AC Milan came from behind to beat visitors Torino 4-2 after extra time and reach the semifinals of the Coppa Italia on Tuesday.

Turkey midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu netted a stoppage-time equalizer before giving the Rossoneri a 3-2 lead in extra time as the home side claimed their fifth win in as many games to set up a last-four clash with Juventus.

Milan were clear favorites and went ahead on 12 minutes when midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura latched onto Ante Rebic's cross.

Gleison Bremer, however, equalized 10 minutes before the interval with a low, angled shot and he put the visitors ahead by heading in Ola Aina's cross in the 71st minute.

Yet Calhanoglu's half-volley two minutes into stoppage time drew Milan level and he was at it again in the 107th with a shot from close range before substitute Ibrahimovic rounded off the scoring two minutes later from inside the box.

With banners and music, Milan's San Siro stadium paid tribute to former NBA star Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash on Sunday. 

Bryant had spent part of his childhood in Italy.
