AC Milan beat Serie B side Reggina 3-0 Thursday to set up a showdown with Serie A leader Juventus in the Italian Cup quarterfinals.
Colombian defender Mario Yepes put Milan ahead in the 51st minute under the snow at the San Siro, 17-year-old French forward M'Baye Niang doubled the lead in the 79th and former Italy international Giampaolo Pazzini added another goal in the 81st.
Juventus edged Cagliari 1-0 Wednesday.
Yepes scored with a header following a cross from Urby Emanuelsson, Niang slotted a shot past the goalkeeper to finish off a counterattack for his first goal since transferring from Caen, while replays showed Pazzini's goal was offside.
Milan's leading scorer Stephen El Shaarawy never left the bench.
