Roma, Fiorentina through to Italian Cup quarterfinals

ROME (AP) — Substitute Paulo Dybala scored to send Roma into the Italian Cup quarterfinals with a 1-0 win over second-division Genoa on Thursday. Dybala was brought on at halftime and he changed the game as Roma’s attack instantly looked more dangerous. He scored what was to prove the winner in the 64th minute. Roma will face either Serie A leader Napoli or bottom club Cremonese in the quarterfinals. They face each other on Tuesday. Fiorentina will play Torino in the next round after comfortably seeing off Serie A struggler Sampdoria with a 1-0 win.
