SAINTS loanee Dani Osvaldo's Europa League dream is still alive.

The controversial striker was a late sub as Juventus advanced to the quarter finals with a 1-0 win at Serie A rivals Fiorentina last night.

Andrea Pirlo scored a second half free-kick as Osvaldo and co - well set to win the Italian League title - clinched a 2-1 aggregate victory.

Osvaldo had started all three of Juve's Europa League ties since arriving at the club in January, scoring in both legs against Trapzonspor.

But he was relegated to the bench last night, only coming on in the 88th minute.
