Qarabag 1-2 Fiorentina: Full time and highlights

It was nearly unwatchable at times, but what matters is that the Viola won Group J.

First half

Qarabag striker Dino Ndlovu hit the post in the 31st minute, and Federico Bernardeschi returned the favor 5 minutes later after some good work from Maxi Olivera.

Second half

Almost dead on the hour mark, Matias Vecino picked up the ball on the edge of the area and lashed a low, hard shot past Qarabag goalkeeper Sehic, who could have done much better.

At 73’, Reynaldo ran onto a through ball after Fiorentina stopped, expecting a whistle, and slotted home past Ciprian Tatarusanu to level the match.

Just 3 minutes later, though, a Nikola Kalinic shot was partially blocked right to an unmarked Federico Chiesa, and the teenager nodded home for his first-ever goal for the senior side.

At the 84’ mark, Chiesa received his second yellow for pulling a Qarabag player down from behind by the shoulders as he went away from goal.

Full time

Goals: Reynaldo 73’ (ass. Quintana), Vecino 60’ (ass. Kalinic), Chiesa 76’
