Fiorentina beat a Juve with no more stimuli by conquering seventh place in the standings, a useful position to grab the qualification in Europe at Atalanta’s expense. The Italian team will compete in the Conference League, a coach capable of scoring 62 points, 22 more than those scrapped by the Viola in the last disappointing season under another management. Victory without discussion against the Bianconeri (who greeted the starters Chiellini, Dybala and Bernardeschi) at the Franchi in a game in total control unlocked in the 45th minute. After a hit and counter at the edge of the area with Bonaventura protagonist after a clash with Chiellini, the ball ended up further on Duncan’s feet who put the goal of the Viola advantage behind Perin. In the second half at Fiorentina it was enough to administer the operations to avoid taking risks and to complete the mission. And so precisely in the 90th minute Fiorentina put the seal on victory and Europe with a penalty kick converted by Gonzalez and originated from a foul by Bonucci.
The Florentine victory would have made any success for Atalanta useless, which, probably discouraged by the news coming from Tuscany, collapsed at home against Empoli. A very entertaining first half at the Gewiss Stadium with a goalless draw, but characterized by numerous goal chances, especially by the hosts who, after a slow start, have taken more and more pitch. It took the best Vicar to keep the Tuscans afloat. But in the final, in the 79th minute, Andreazzoli’s team found the goal that allowed the Empolese to conquer Bergamo. –
