Result: Lazio, Napoli draw in the first leg of Coppa Italia semi-final

Lazio and Napoli draw 1-1 in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final.

Lazio and Napoli could not find a way past each other in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final.

It was Lazio that started strongest with Miroslav Klose heading the ball onto the post from a header, before pressuring Mariano Andujar with another header from Dusan Basta's cross.

Gonzalo Higuain got Napoli's first shot on target, but should have opened the scoring after poking the ball straight at Etrit Berisha from Dries Mertens's cross.

It was Klose who recorded the first goal of the game though, the veteran German finishing low after a run and pass assist from Felipe Anderson.

Things then quietened down until after the break, David Lopez hitting the bar for Napoli with a header after rising unchallenged. Manolo Gabbiadini then had a deflected shot just tipped around the post, before grabbing the equaliser.

Huguain rounded Berisha but his shot his was heading wide until Gabbiadini arrived at the far post to poke the ball home.

Things then started to heat up and both Klose and Raul Albiol were booked for clashing together after a rough challenge from the latter.

It was end-to-end stuff with Klose once again involved in the action, along with Jonathan de Guzman. Napoli were getting on the wrong side of the referee though, with Gabbiadini, Giandomenico Mesto, and Gokhan Inler the latest players to be booked.

The second leg will take place on April 8 at Stadio San Paolo.
