Gervinho: 'Roma avenged Turin defeat'

Gervinho believes the Coppa Italia success allowed Roma to “avenge” their Serie A defeat to Juventus.

The two sides clashed in the League two weeks ago with a 3-0 Bianconeri victory in Turin.

They met again tonight and Gervinho scored the winner for a 1-0 Coppa Italia quarter-final triumph.

“I am truly happy, because I scored and because we played well,” Gervinho told Roma Channel.

“It was very exciting for me and it wasn’t easy to play against Juve, as they were well-covered.

“We avenged the game played on January 5.”

Roma go through to face either Napoli or Lazio in the semi-final next month, which will be played over two legs on February 5 and 12.

“It’s not my problem who we face. I am focused only on reaching the Final and winning the next game.”
