New, comments

If you were watching the game, the first 60 minutes were boring and the last 30 were a lot of fun.

Pre-Match

Riccardo Saponara is playing again today which is some fun pre-match news. Also it looks like Stefano Pioli is going with Milenkovic, Vitor Hugo, Pezzella, and Biraghi on the back line.

First Half

Well Jordan Veretout could not convert on a penalty kicks in the 13’.

That was the only highlight or lowlight of the first half. If you happened to oversleep due to your St. Patrick’s Day escapades you picked a good first half to miss.

Second Half

The second half started much like the first half, but had a change of events when Jordan Veretout stole the ball from the Torino defense to score in the 59’.

Just as Fiorentina fans were counting there chickens before the eggs were hatched, Andrea Belotti had other plans. He scored a goal with only four minutes left in the match.

In added time a handball in the box closed out the game with a Cyril Thereau penalty shot that ended in a goal. Fiorentina managed to win even though they looked like they would have to settle for 1 point.

Full Time

Goals: Torino: (Belotti 86’) Fiorentina: (Veretout 59’, Thereau 90 + 4)

Yellow Cards: Torino: (De Silvestri 14’, Falque 23’, Niang 71’) Fiorentina: (Biraghi 76’, Pezzella 84’, Benassi 90’)
