Perugia send Juventus packing

AC Perugia scored twice in the last five minutes to seal a 4-1 aggregate win against Juventus FC in the Italian Cup.

AC Perugia scored twice in the last five minutes to complete a comfortable Italian Cup quarter-final success against Juventus FC.

Milan next
Fabrizio Miccoli and Zé Maria scored the goals that earned Perugia a 2-0 home victory and 4-1 aggregate success against Juventus, the nine-times winners of the Italian Cup. They now face league leaders AC Milan in the last four.

Miccoli does it again
Miccoli, scorer of both goals in the first leg, escaped the attentions of Igor Tudor to score Perugia's first after 85 minutes and Zé Maria added the second from the penalty spot in injury time, after Juventus goalkeeper Antonio Chimenti had fouled midfield player Luigi Pagliuca.

Rome derby
Juventus fielded a weakened side and rarely looked like overturning their 2-1 deficit from the first leg in Turin. AS Roma will meet S.S. Lazio in the other semi-final. The dates of the two-legged semi-final are 5 February and 5 March.
