AC Milan Women faced Sassuolo on the road in the first leg of the Coppa Italia quarter final. The Rossonere took the lead early on through captain Valentina Giacinti just before half time in a one on one situation where she made no mistake. This is her fourth goal in the Cup. Maria Korenciova was the standout performer once again as she saved the Rossonere on multiple occasions throughout the game with her exceptional reflex saves. Milan made a mistake by playing defensive for the entire second half instead of putting the game away resulting in Sassuolo getting back on level terms late in the game as Philjtens netted for the home side. Milan will host Sassuolo at Vismara on Sunday for the reverse fixture.
