Roma Women reach Coppa Italia quarter-finals as cup defence continues

Roma Women have booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia Femminile after winning their group.

With both sides having beaten Tavagnacco in the first group games, Roma went into Saturday’s clash with Pomigliano knowing it would be a case of winner takes it all for the knockout stages.

Fortunately, the reigning champions claimed a 3-1 win to reach the round of eight.

Claudia Ciccotti gave Roma the lead in the 26th minute, but Pomigliano equalised through the Yorkshire-born Danielle Cox just before the hour mark.

Roma managed to re-establish their lead, though, via Vanessa Bernauer as the final 10 minutes approached. Then, Valeria Pirone removed any doubt by adding a third in stoppage time.

Roma therefore will be in the quarter-finals and end 2021 on a six-match winning run across all competitions.
