Serie A: Fiorentina beat Roma in the European Cup - Football - International

Fiorentina beat Roma 2-0 in the 36th round of the Italian Serie A to collect three crucial indicators in the battle for the Europa League places.

Already in the fifth minute begins the Florence show. After a foul by Roma defender Karsdopp on the edge of the area, Gonzalez scored a cool goal against Roma Patricio to make the score 1-0 in favor of Fiorentina.

Roma goalless stop in the 11th minute: Bonaventura punishes the uncoordinated guest defense and moves alone inside the penalty area. At 2-0, the midfielder scored against Patricio at the bottom left.

Pellegrini (20) gets Roma’s only chance after Amrabat’s mistake. The free kick comes halfway, but Fiorentina goalkeeper Terracciano clears the corner.

In the 24th minute, Bonaventura’s supposed second goal was not scored due to a clear offside, then Milinkovic (37) tested Patricio again.

Abraham misses the best chance for Roma

After changing sides, the Florence team immediately hit the gas again. In the 51st minute, Roma are very lucky: after the arrest of Cristante and Gonzalez, the VAR does not decide on a penalty kick for Fiorentina.

Two minutes later, Abraham (53.) has a great chance in a header against defender Lilin Julio. The ball rolls just a few centimeters away from the goal post.

Shortly thereafter, Amrabat (56) shoots dangerously over the other side in front of Roma’s penalty area and pulls away. Patricio wipes the corner kick with his fingertips, which the hosts don’t use.

The next good chances don’t come until the last stages: Zaniolo (83) wanted to put the ball halfway for Abraham from the right edge of the penalty area, but Teraciano quietly thwarted the opportunity.

Maleh (84) made it 3-0 with a narrow angle, but Patricio once again saved Roma from a dormant defense.

For the Romans, the defeat comes doubly as Fiorentina tied on points (59 each), with Roma retaining sixth place on goal difference. Additionally, DC lost for the first time since day four of the 2016/17 season at Stadio Artemio Franchi.
