A young Juventus side squashed SPAL 4-0 on Wednesday to set up a Coppa Italia semi-last against Inter Milan after 10-man Atalanta booked a spot in the last four by beating Lazio in a Bergamo spine chiller.
Alvaro Morata's punishment gave the Italian victors an early lead in Turin, and 21-year-old wing-back Gianluca Frabotta multiplied their preferred position before halftime by rifling a shot into the base corner, his first objective for the club.
Dejan Kulusevski added a third with a formed completion following 78 minutes and Federico Chiesa's stoppage-time tap-in finished the defeat against the second-level guests.
Yet, Juve confronted little opposition as they ran out agreeable victors against a SPAL side that is fifth in Serie B, and they will currently confront Antonio Conte's Inter more than two legs for a spot in the last.
In Bergamo, Atalanta killed Lazio in spite of going through a large portion of the second half with 10 men, setting up a semi-last against the champ of Thursday's conflict among Napoli and Spezia.
Berat Djimsiti gave the hosts an early lead before Lazio struck back through Vedat Muriqi and Francesco Acerbi, however Ruslan Malinovskyi terminated in an equalizer for the hosts towards the finish of a throbbing first half.
Atalanta protector Jose Luis Palomino was shipped off for a last-man challenge in the 54th moment, however the home side reacted eminently as Aleksey Miranchuk put them ahead three minutes after the fact.
Gian Piero Gasperini's side might have made it four from the punishment spot yet Duvan Zapata's work was saved by Jose Reina, and Lazio were left baffled as they tossed numbers forward looking for an equalizer.
