Palermo stunned by Verona

Verona pulled off a shock in the fourth round of the Coppa Italia after they beat Serie A side Palermo 2-1 at the Stadio Renzo Barbera.

Verona are riding high in third place in Serie B and took that form into Tuesday evening's cup clash.

The home side made the ideal start as Luigi Giorgi gave Palermo a seventh-minute lead, but two minutes later Verona levelled through Andrea Cocco before Daniele Cacia sealed the win after 73 minutes.
