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.

Milan is seventh in Serie A, 14 points behind Juventus.
