Fresh off mollywhopping Cagliari at home, Fiorentina went on the road to take on Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio. With the late news that Nicolás González tested positive for coronavirus, there was a bit of a question over whether this game would go forward, but the rest of the squad tested negative
And negative was the word in a game where there were only 3 of the 14 total shots were on target and the primary excitement in the first half was the streaming services failing to produce video or audio for about half an hour as both teams sought to control the pace of the game without actually creating very much.
Lazio got on the board just after the break with a lovey team goal off a long ball and that always felt like that. Without González’ dynamism, the Viola never looked like getting the breakthrough and, sure enough, the rest of the game petered out to a trickle. If you want to relive the experience, you’re a weirdo, but all our usual coverage is right down there to help you do so.
