Juventus maintained their unbeaten record in all competitions this season as despite fielding a second string side they overwhelmed a full strength AS Roma 3-0 in their Italian Cup quarter-final on Tuesday.

Emanuele Giaccherini set them on their way in the sixth minute as the vertically challenged Italian international forward broke the offside trap to score his second goal in as many matches, having hit the back of the net against Atalanta on Saturday.

Veteran Juventus icon Alessandro Del Piero doubled their lead in the 30th minute, the 37-year-old unleashing an unstoppable shot into the left hand corner of Maarten Stekelenburg's goal.

Roma didn't improve their chances of a comeback when they were reduced to 10 men in the 68th minute, Argentinian Erik Lamela being sent from the pitch after fouling Giaccherini right in front of the linesman.

Fabio Quagliarella set up Alessandro Matri for Juventus's third in the final minute of the match and set up a semi-final against the winners of Thursday's tie between AC Milan and Lazio.

The other semi-final will feature the winners of Wednesday's match-ups between Siena and Chievo and a repeat of last year's quarter-final between Napoli and holders Inter Milan.
