MILAN - Mirko Vucinic helped to send AS
Roma into the Italian Cup semi-finals with a superb goal to set
up a 2-0 win at Juventus on Thursday.
The in-form Montenegro forward picked up the ball on the
side of the area midway through the second half and effortlessly
curled it into the far corner.
Rodrigo Taddei added a second goal in added time with an
acrobatic finish to ensure Roma progressed to meet holders Inter
Milan in the last four.
The bad-tempered encounter was riddled with fouls and
injuries but Claudio Ranieri's side just about deserved to beat
his former club with Simplicio also having a header saved.
Juve piled on the pressure towards the end but never really
came close to scoring despite fielding a strong side as they
became the latest big club to play their top players in a
previously unloved competition.

semi-finals after Leonardo's side beat Napoli on penalties on
