We look back over the Coppa Italia quarter-final clash between Roma and Cesena with six interesting facts and figures from the match at the Olimpico, including the latest fascinating statistic about Francesco Totti Roma and Cesena had never produced a scoreline in 28 previous meetings, making Wednesday's result a first. An honourable mention goes to to Roma, which has occurred four times in the past. Roma have reached the last four of the Coppa Italia for the first time since The Giallorossi, then under Rudi Garcia, saw off Juventus in the quarter-final at the Stadio Olimpico with a neat backheeled finish from Gervinho from Kevin Strootman's pass, before meeting Napoli in the two-legged semi. Roma won the first leg at home with a superb strike from Strootman from outside the box, before losing on the road to bow out of the competition at the penultimate hurdle.

A last-gasp penalty from Francesco Totti fired Roma into an Italian Cup semi-final with city rivals Lazio after a shaky win over Cesena on Wednesday. Totti was given a rare start by Roma coach Luciano Spalletti, but it took the Serie A title challengers until the 68th minute to hit the mark, Edin Dzeko making up for a series of glaring misses by sweeping Stephan El Shaarawy's pass from the left past onrushing goalkeeper Federico Agliardi. Second division Cesena were given a chance to pull level when Roma 'keeper Alisson, standing in for Wojciech Szczesny, almost collided with defender Kostas Manolas as he rose to challenge for a high ball, spilling it into the path of a thankful Luca Garritano who fired home from the edge of the area on 73 minutes. Totti came close with a superb free-kick effort from outside the area that Agliardi did well to palm away. The match looked to be heading for extra time until Totti, playing his 25th and likely last season with the capital club, stepped up to beat Agliardi from the spot in the seventh minute of added-on time. In the other semi-final holders Juventus, who eliminated last year's finalists AC Milan, meet title challengers Napoli.
