Fiorentina seal cup semi spot

Fiorentina booked their place in the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia on Thursday evening with a hard-fought win at home to Tuscan rivals Siena.

Josip Ilicic put the Serie A side in front after 20 minutes, but Guillermo Giacomazzi levelled 14 minutes into the second half.

Marvin Compper's powerful header from a corner settled the tie 15 minutes from time, though, as La Viola progressed to the last four.
