Pescara 1-2 Fiorentina: Highlights

Well now, that was a whole lot harder than it needed to be.

A defensive crisis forced Paulo Sousa into using an unfamiliar backline which had never played together.

First half

In the 15th minute, Gianluca Caprari latched onto a through ball from Cristiano Biraghi after Maxi Olivera kept him onside and finished past Marco Sportiello.

Second half

Cristian Tello leveled at the 68’ mark with a simply incredible golazo from distance.

Tello struck again in stoppage time, albeit accidentally. His left-wing cross for Federico Chiesa barely evaded the young winger, but flashed across goal and buried itself in the netting at the back post.

Full time

Goals: Caprari 15’ (ass. Biraghi), Tello 68’ (ass. Olivera),

Bookings: Benali 33’, Biraghi 53’, Gyomber 53’, Bruno 56’, Tomovic 17’, Vecino 38’, Badelj 49’
