New, comments

Some shocking refereeing sees the Biancocelesti keep their title hopes alive, but the Viola have every right to be furious about how it happened.

Pre-match

Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi made 3 changes to the side that lost at Atalanta on Wednesday. Fiorentina, coached by Giuseppe Carrillo after Giuseppe Iachini’s red card last time out, brought in Patrick Cutrone, Milan Badelj, and Rachid Ghezzal.

First half

Franck Ribery turned back the years with an absolutely spectacular solo effort that saw him knife through about half of the Biancocelesti before sweetly slotting home.

Second half

A very, very obvious dive from Felipe Caicedo saw referee Michael Fabbri award a penalty without checking VAR.

Ciro Immobile slotted home the spot kick, but the call remains a real travesty as Caicedo threw himself down well before Bartłomiej Drągowski touched him.

Luis Alberto put it away with a lovely finish on the break after his poor pass through bounced back to him.

Full time

Goals: Immobile 67’ (PK), Luis Alberto 83’

Cards: Parolo 7’, Milinković-Savić 24’, Jony 54’, Radu 79, Dalbert 5’, Milinković 32’, Vlahović red card 90’+5
