At 15th August Genoa has beaten Grosseto (this year new in Serie B) in the first round of Coppa Italia. Omar Milanetto scored the first goal after 3 minutes with a perfect free-kick and after 16 minutes Papa Waigo doubled the score into 2-0 by scoring a perfect assist of Marco di Vaio. Before half-time ex-Genoano of the year Marco Carparelli scored the last goal of the match: 2-1. Our ex-player did not celebrate his goal to show his respect to Genoa-supporters. In the next round Genoa has to play against Ascoli, one of the favorites to win Serie B this year, after the relegation of Serie A last season.
