A solitary goal from Vassilis Torosidis was enough for AS Roma as they beat Sampdoria 1-0 to advance into the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia.
The home side took an early lead just after six minutes, Mattia Destro failed to connect with Dodo's cross but Vassilis Torosidis was on hand to slot home.
Three minutes later Lukasz Skorupski did well to deny Gianluca Sansone from close range after a swift counter attack.
Roma were at it again in the 25th minute as Adem Ljajic played in Radja Nainggolan, who's first time left-footed shot was palmed away by Vincenzo Fiorillo.
Fiorillo was called upon again in the 36th minute, this time Sampdoria's number one pulled off a fine double save to deny midfielder Alessandro Florenzi.
Sansone came close to grabbing an equaliser for the visitors in the 52nd minute, but his long range effort drew a fine save from Lukasz Skorupski.
It was all one way traffic and the home side continued to create the chances but Sampdoria's shotstopper denied Destro once more in the 80th minute from close range.
Torosidis came close getting his second of the night in the 83rd minute, but defender's chip was tipped over the bar Fiorillo.
The visitors failed to create any opportunities in the closing stages of the game, with home side content on just keeping the ball.
