After yesterday's victory over Inter Milan in the quarter final, the next question is who Napoli faces in the semi-final. That question has now been answered: Lazio.

Napoli were drawn with the Roman side in the hours after their last-minute win over Inter. Lazio reached the semi-finals by beating AC Milan 1-0 at the San Siro last week, after beating Torino and Varese in the two previous rounds. Lazio have won the Coppa six times, most recently in 2013.

Napoli beat Lazio in the quarter final round of the Coppa last season en route to winning the title last season. These sides have faced off once already this season, with Napoli coming out as 1-0 winners in January. The two sides are informal rivals, and contests between them are often fairly heated affairs.

The first leg of the semi-final will take place on March 4th in the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, with the second leg on April 8th at the San Paolo. Last year's semi-final also started away in Rome before coming back to Naples, when Napoli beat Roma 5-3 on aggregate thanks in large part to a 3-0 home win.

The other semi-final will be between Juventus and Fiorentina, as the Viola try to earn their way back to the final, where they lost to Napoli a year ago.
