Gomez brace, Cuadrado from the spot as Viola beat Atalanta. Roma next in the quarters

Mario Gomez scored twice and Juan Cuadrado converted from 12 yards as Fiorentina saw off the resistance of Atalanta to progress to the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia. Rolando Bianchi reduced the arrears shortly before the interval with an unstoppable curling effort into the bottom corner but there was to be no second-half comeback for the visitors. Alessandro Diamanti made his Viola bow as a late substitute while Marcos Alonso saw red for a second booking. A trip to the Stadio Olimpico now awaits, with Roma playing host on Tuesday 3 February.
