Spal, the last Serie B team still in the Italian Cup race, won 2-0 on the lawn of Sassuolo (Serie A), Thursday in the round of 16, to afford a prestigious quarter against Juventus Turin.

Sassuolo, with a reorganized team, lost track at the start of the second half.

Spal will meet Juventus in two weeks, who qualified on Wednesday against Genoa, not without difficulties (3-2 after extra time).
