Gonzalo Bergessio scored twice in a 3-1 extra-time victory as Catania avoided a shock exit to nine-man Cittadella in the fourth round of the Coppa Italia.

Tommaso Bellazzini missed a penalty in the 28th minute but the Serie B outfit would take the lead in Sicily thanks to Andrea Paolucci's free-kick four minutes before the break.

Citta duo Massimiliano Busellato and Andrea De Vito were both dismissed for picking up two yellow cards in the second half, though, leaving Bergessio space to level with two minutes left to play.

Extra-time loomed large and the visitors were unable not hold out any longer, with quick goals from Francesco Lodi and Bergessio booking the hosts a fifth-round meeting with Parma.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
