AC Milan striker Olivier Giroud scored his second brace in five days in a 4-0 win over Lazio on Wednesday, as the Rossoneri set up a Coppa Italia semi-final clash with rivals Inter in style.

Rafael Leao fired Milan in front before Giroud struck from close range twice in the space of five minutes at the end of the first half.

Things got worse for Lazio when their top scorer Ciro Immobile limped off injured after the break, and their miserable night was completed when Franck Kessie fired home a late fourth.

Rafael Leao opened the scoring as he slotted the ball past Pepe Reina after 24 minutes
