Ciro Immobile opened the scoring with a back post header. The ball was flicked on by Stefan Radu, but the marking from the Viola defenders was simply not good enough.
Fiorentina were the better side in the second half but didn’t test Thomas Strakosha enough. In the final few moments Fiorentina should have equizled through Edimilson Fernandes, but the midfielder made a poor decision in crossing the ball.
