Roma, Fiorentina into Italian Cup QFs

Substitute Paulo Dybala has scored to send Roma into the Italian Cup quarter-finals with a 1-0 win over second-tier Genoa.

Dybala was brought on at halftime and he changed the game as Roma's previously misfiring attack instantly looked more dangerous.

He scored the winner in the 64th minute, gathering a pass from Gianluca Mancini and weaving his way towards goal, beating several players before firing into the roof of the net from a tight angle.

Lorenzo Pellegrini had hit the post in the first half with Roma's only real goalscoring opportunity.

Roma will face either Serie A leaders Napoli or bottom club Cremonese, who face each other on Tuesday, in the last eight.

Fiorentina will play Torino in the next round after seeing off Serie A strugglers Sampdoria with a 1-0 win.

Torino surprisingly eliminated Milan on Wednesday after extra time, despite playing 50 minutes with 10 men.

Antonin Barak scored the only goal of the game in Florence in the 25th minute when Sampdoria failed to properly deal with a cross from the left from Aleksa Terzic.

Sampdoria's night worsened in stoppage time when defender Jeison Murillo was sent off following a second yellow card.
