Of the eight, AC Milan vs. Lazio appears to be the marquee match-up. With AC Milan invested in successful Serie A and UEFA Cup campaigns, Lazio has an opportunity to surprise the Italian giants. Also on tap are:
Internazionale vs. Genoa, Roma vs. Bologna, Sampdoria vs. Empoli, Udinese vs. Reggina, Fiorentina vs. Torino, Napoli vs. Salernitana, and Juventus vs. Catania.
Serie B sides include Salernitana and Empoli. Empoli was relegated from Serie A last season leaving Salernitana as the lone Cinderalla at the dance. Salernitana won promotion to Serie B last season after capturing the Serie C title.
Who will advance?
I have Lazio, Inter, Roma, Sampdoria, Udinese, Torino, Napoli, and Juventus advancing to the quarterfinals.
