Salah leads Fiorentina to 2-1 win at Juventus in cup semis

TURIN, Italy (AP) — Raising his tally to six goals in seven matches since arriving on loan from Chelsea, Mohamed Salah scored twice and Fiorentina won 2-1 at Juventus in the opening leg of the Italian Cup semifinals on Thursday.

Salah scored his first 11 minutes in when he sprinted past three defenders and dribbled for 60 yards before launching in a shot from inside the area.

After Fernando Llorente equalized with a header in the 24th, Salah scored the winner in the second half with an angled shot inside the area.

Since transferring last month, Salah has three goals in Serie A, one in the Europa League, and two in Italian Cup play.

Lazio and Napoli drew 1-1 in the other semifinal on Wednesday.

The return legs are on April 7-8.
