Ronaldo makes it seven goals in four games as Juventus beat Roma in Coppa Italia


Cristiano Ronaldo has continued his scoring streak with the opener as Juventus cruised past AS Roma 3-1 in their Coppa Italia quarter-final, scoring all their goals in the first half.

Gonzalo Higuain set Ronaldo free down the left and the irrepressible Portuguese fired his shot into the far corner in the 26th minute on Wednesday to claim his 13th goal in his past 10 matches.

It was also his first Coppa Italia goal, making it the 15th club competition he has scored in during his career.

Rodrigo Bentancur and Leonardo Bonucci added two more in the 10 minutes before halftime but Roma pulled one back five minutes after the break with a Cengiz Under shot which hit the bar and bounced off goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and into the net.

Juventus will face either AC Milan or Torino in the semi-finals.
