It was as expected with no changes to the side. Simeone led the line with the Thereau, Chiesa, and Benassi supporting. As for the away side they were without their talisman Andrea Belotti. They had former Viola player Ljajić who was looking to get one over his former side.
1-0 Marco Benassi
After some brilliant link up play Marco Benassi fired home the opening goal against his former club, with the help of Giovanni Simeone. It was the midfielder’s second goal in two games for Fiorentina
2-0 Giovanni Simeone
Marco Benassi was involved again this time to set up Simeone who superbly struck the ball with the outside of his foot to make it 2-0 to the Viola. After mounting pressure for Babacar to start up front, he answered his critics in stunning fashion.
3-0 Khouma Babacar
Despite it being a very controversial penalty, Babacar slotted it away brilliantly past Sirigu. It looked a formality as he ran up to take it and indeed did send the keeper the wrong way to seal the points for the Viola.
