Serie A Femminile is still prepping itself for the Scudetto Pool and the Survival Pool which get underway on March 18, but for the big four teams there were Coppa Italia semi-finals to settle.
AS Roma were losing 1-0 to AC Milan after the first leg but a dramatic game featuring another Martina Piemonte goal, and efforts from Andressa Alves and Valentina Giacinti meant it looked set for extra time. In the 101st minute after some lengthy stoppages, Vicky Losada grabbed her first goal for Roma and sent her team into the final.
Over in Turin at the same time, Juventus and Inter were level at 1-1 going into the second leg and Sara Bjork Gunnarsdottir quickly put the Bianconeri in control with a goal inside two minutes. Tabitha Chawinga took it to extra time but Lineth Beerensteyn continued to show her importance by grabbing the winner.
