GERVINHO SCORED THE only goal of the game as Roma moved into the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia with a 1-0 win over Juventus.

The capital club, who had been beaten 3-0 by Serie A leaders Juve earlier this month, dictated play for much of a scrappy encounter and were rewarded with a victory that keeps alive their hopes of avenging a defeat to Lazio in last year’s final.

It was former Arsenal forward Gervinho who emerged as the hero as he struck 11 minutes from time with a superb backheel volley to condemn Juve to a first domestic loss since a 4-2 defeat to Fiorentina on October 20.
