Afp, Rome

AS Roma defeated Inter Milan 2-1 in the Italian Cup semifinal first leg on Wednesday, but face a wait of almost three months to play the second leg.
Four days after the two sides drew 1-1 in Serie A, Roma were worthy winners creating a host of opportunities.
Both Roma's goals came in the first half with Alessandro Florenzi heading in a cross from Ivan Piris in the 13th minute before the Paraguayan also teed-up Mattia Destro for another scoring header after 33 minutes.
But Inter grabbed a lifeline when Rodrigo Palacio latched on to an Esteban Cambiasso free-kick and headed home just before the interval.
