Milan set up Juventus clash in cup semis

Serie A champions AC Milan set up a mouthwatering Italian Cup semi-final against league pacesetters Juventus after a 3-1 quarter-final home win against Lazio on Thursday.

Djibril Cisse gave the visitors a surprise lead after just five minutes before Milan took control with two goals in four minutes from Robinho and Clarence Seedorf before their Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic wrapped up the victory.

Brazilian Robinho scored with a close-range volley after 15 minutes to equalise and midfielder Seedorf put Milan in front after rounding goalkeeper Federico Marchetti and firing home.

Ibrahimovic sealed the win six minutes from time to set up a two-legged semi-final against Juve in February and March when Napoli play Siena in the other last four clash.

Juventus beat AS Roma 3-0 on Tuesday while Napoli knocked out holders Inter Milan 2-0 and Siena won 1-0 at Chievo Verona.
