The first legs of the Coppa Italia Femminile semi-finals were played out over March’s first weekend with Martina Piemonte and AC Milan Women’s good form continuing as the powerful forward led the Rossonere to a 1-0 win over runaway Serie A Femminile leaders AS Roma.

Both semi-final first legs were held in Milan, with Inter and Juventus proving inseparable again as they played out a 1-1 draw on Saturday, ahead of Milan’s narrow win against the Giallorosse.

All to play for the in the Derby d’Italia

For the second time in three meetings this season, nothing could split Inter and Juventus as they drew 1-1 on Saturday afternoon. Their first clash of the season ended in a thrilling 3-3 draw in Turin before the Bianconere claimed a hard-fought 2-0 win in the return fixture in Milan.

Juventus got themselves in front in the first half through Canadian Julia Grosso, continuing her fine form this season under Joe Montemurro and scoring yet another big goal – following an opener against Como and a game-shaping strike in the win away at AS Roma in December.

Beatrice Merlo was able to level things up shortly after the hour mark though and just three minutes after the brilliant Tabitha Chawinga had been introduced.

Martina Piemonte is one of the toughest forwards to handle in Serie A Femminile, boasting strength like nobody else in Italian women’s football, and she had found a real run of form in the second half of the 2022/23 regular season. That form shows no sign of slowing down after her winner against former club Roma on Sunday, with AC Milan themselves looking a very different side to the team who regularly fell short of expectations in the first part of the regular season under Maurizio Ganz.
