Milan progressed through to the next round of the Italian Cup midweek after a comfortable 3-0 defeat of SPAL. Samu Castillejo scored the second of the three goals just before half-time. After collecting the ball to the right of the opposition penalty area, he takes two touches to set himself - one with the right foot and one with the left foot - before curling a beautiful, precise strike high into the top left corner.

Cagliari had the misfortune of coming up against an in-form Inter side in the cup and eventually succumbed to a 4-1 defeat, and even though their solitary goal won't come as much consolation, it was still the best of the night. Alberto Cerri runs in behind the Inter defence to receive possession to feet and then, whilst facing the wing, flicks the ball back into space for his team-mate Christian Oliva to run on to it and fire a blistering finish into the right corner, with Samir Handanovic in goal not even having the time to move from the spot.

The Juventus forward line showed they are completely capable of scoring goals, impressive ones, even with Cristiano Ronaldo not around as they put four past Udinese in the Italian Cup. The best of the bunch was the first one, as Higuain and Dybala exchanged not one, not two, but three one-twos in a row before the former Real Madrid striker confidently tucked a finish home. Yes, there may have been an extra touch here or there, but the opposing defence couldn't get near the duo or their superb link-up play.
