Roma gained revenge for their recent crushing defeat at the hands of Juventus by knocking the Serie A leaders out of the Coppa Italia at the quarter-final stage.

The Turin club were 3-0 winners when the two sides met in the league earlier this month, but Roma turned the tables on Tuesday night with a 1-0 win at the Stadio Olimpico.

Juve thought they had taken the lead a minute after the restart through a Federico Peluso header but the effort was ruled out for offside.

And the visitors were hit on the counter-attack 11 minutes from time, with substitute Miralem Pjanic racing the length of the field before laying the ball off to Kevin Strootman, who whipped in a cross for Gervinho to poke home the only goal from close range.

Roma will now play the winners of next week's quarter-final tie between Napoli and Lazio.

The other matches pit AC Milan against Udinese on Wednesday while Fiorentina take on Tuscan neighbours Siena on Thursday.

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
