Jeison Murillo scored with a spectacular bicycle kick and Antonio Candreva got the winner in extra time as Inter Milan beat Bologna 3-2 on Tuesday to advance to the Coppa Italia quarterfinals.
Gabigol got his first start for Inter and threatened on multiple occasions early on.
Shortly after the half-hour mark, Murillo broke the deadlock in style, redirecting a corner from Joao Mario with a picture-perfect overhead effort from beyond the penalty spot.
Mario also provided the pass when Rodrigo Palacio burst through the offside trap to make it 2-0 six minutes later.
Blerim Dzemaili pulled one back for Bologna before the break with a shot that was deflected in by Inter midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia.
Godfred Donsah equalised for Bologna in the 73rd minute, heading in a cross by the far post as Inter's defense appeared more concerned with Mattia Destro.
Inter captain Mauro Icardi came on midway through the second half and wasted a perfect chance five minutes after Donsah's goal, failing miserably to direct an accurate cross from Eder.
Eight minutes into extra time, Candreva scored with a shot that deflected in off a defender.
Inter, who have won five straight games in Serie A, will next face Lazio or Genoa, who play on Wednesday. Inter won the last of their seven cup titles in 2011.
