Mirko Vucinic's extra-time goal ensured Juventus ended AC Milan's hopes in the Coppa Italia for the second year in a row after edging out their Serie A rivals 2-1 in their quarter-final clash.

Milan were also knocked out of last year's competition at the last four stage by the Old Lady but started well tonight and took a sixth-minute lead through Stephan El Shaarawy, although Juventus soon drew level thanks to Sebastian Giovinco's exquisite free-kick.

The teams could not be separated after 90 minutes, although it took just five minutes into extra-time for Juventus to score what would prove to be the winner, with substitute Vucinic toe-poking past Milan goalkeeper Marco Amelia despite a suspicion of offside.

Juventus will now face Lazio, who beat Catania 3-0 on Tuesday night, in a two-legged semi-final clash.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
