MILAN (Reuters) - Juventus playmaker Paulo Dybala scored his first goal for a month to send the titleholders on their way to a 2-0 win over Genoa in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday and set up a quarter-final against neighbours Torino.
Dybala, dropped for Juve’s last two league games after a loss of form, broke the deadlock three minutes before halftime, outfoxing his markers with a clever turn before firing into the bottom corner.
His fellow Argentine Gonzalo Higuain added the second in the 76th minute from a chance set up by Dybala, whose last goal was in the 3-2 defeat at Sampdoria on Nov. 19.
Torino pulled off a shock 2-1 win away to AS Roma with goals from Lorenzo De Silvestri and Simone Edera who put them 2-0 ahead.
Roma forward Edin Dzeko had a penalty saved by Vanja Milinkovic-Savic before Patrik Schick pulled one back for the hosts with five minutes left.
The quarter-finals will also feature a derby between AC Milan and Inter Milan while Lazio host Fiorentina and Napoli entertain Atalanta.
