Roma narrowly won 1-0 at Fiorentina after extra time in the Italian Cup quarterfinals, after the home side hit the post three times on Wednesday.

Mattia Destro, who missed several earlier chances, scored the only goal seven minutes into extra time. Teammate Daniele De Rossi had an earlier strike ruled out.

Alberto Aquilani, Borja Valero and Juan Cuadrado hit the post for Fiorentina.

Roma midfielder Rodrigo Taddei was sent off three minutes from the end of extra time.

Fiorentina's Cuadrado and Roma's Dodo were also dismissed as a brawl broke out at the death. The fight continued as they walked down the tunnel.

Roma will meet Inter Milan in the semifinals. The winner will face either Juventus or Lazio in the final.
