Preview

Heading into the match Fiorentina occupies the 8th spot in the Serie A table with 45 points. They are hoping to take advantage of playing Crotone, the current 19th seed to find a way back into European play next season. Crotone is just looking to fend off relegation and a win against Fiorentina would certainly help their chances.

First Half

Sometimes I sound like a broken record but the first half was uninspiring. Fiorentina barely had any chances against a team that will probably be relegated. When they did have chances they could not capitalize on them. The team did not play inspiring football at all in the first half.

Second Half

Watching the second half was almost a mirror of watching the first half. La Viola played uninspired football that led to barely winning this game. Controlling 73% of possession got the team a nice little clinic on passing....Also Fiorentina took 22 shots and 1 went in.

Kalinic scored in the 90th minute with the assist going to Saponara.

At least Fiorentina pulled out a win against a team in the relegation zone.

Full Time

Yellow Cards: Cordaz (41’), Rodriguez (61’)
