Roma has triumphed in the battle of Italy’s two most successful Coppa Italia clubs, beating Juventus 2-0 to advance to the semi-finals on Thursday.
Juventus and Roma have won an equal-best nine Italian Cups but it was Claudio Ranieri’s side who took the honours in their quarter-final at the Stadio Olimpico di Torino courtesy of goals to Mirko Vucinic and Rodrigo Taddei.
Roma’s Simone Perrotta provided Vucinic with the opener on 65 minutes, when the midfielder pinpointed the goal scorer with a cross, before he curled a neat finish past Juve goalkeeper Marco Storari to give the visitors the lead.
Taddei then turned in the sealer in the 90th minute after slack defending allowed the Brazilian to finish from a set-piece free-kick.
Roma join Palermo, Inter Milan and AC Milan in the final four of the cup competition.
