Howdy, everybody. Are yall feeling a little bit better? Because I'm feeling a little bit better. In fact, I feel like speechifying a little bit.
Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's talk a little bit about where Fiorentina stand now. This win (first one since a win over Atalanta nearly TWO MONTHS AGO) means that the Viola hang onto 5th place, keeping pace with Inter Milan, who occupy the 4th spot and lead by 2 points. AS Roma still occupy 3rd place, 4 points beyond that, after being held to a 3-3 draw at Atalanta. So, Fiorentina need to make up 6 points in 5 games to make the Champions League. Otherwise, it's another Europa year.
So yeah, as nice as a win is, it's still a long, difficult, and frankly unlikely slog into the Champions League next season. On the plus side, ZOMG FIORENTINA WON ASLKJDFSLKJFDLSK. So let's just go ahead and party now, then worry about what comes next after we've done the partying.
