Fiorentina survived a late scare to book themselves a place in the Coppa Italia semi-finals thanks to a thrilling 3-2 victory over holders Lazio.
Adrian Mutu, who has been linked with a move away from the Stadio Artemio Franchi this transfer window, set the Viola on their way with a brilliant first-half brace.
It took the former Parma and Juventus striker just nine minutes to open the scoring and he doubled his tally on the stroke of half-time.
Lazio looked to stage a comeback and Mauro Zarate reduced the deficit five minutes after the break. However, Per Kroldrup restored the host's two-goal advantage nine minutes later.
Tommaso Rocchi pulled another one back for Lazio after 69 minutes but the Biancocelesti could not complete their fightback.
Cesare Prandelli's men will now meet either Inter or Juventus in the two-legged semi-final next month with the pair set to clash at the San Siro next Thursday.
The other quarter-final ties will also be completed next week with Roma facing Catania and Milan clashing against Udinese.
