Fiorentina-Roma 2-2 The news

Fiorentina-Roma ends 2-2, with the Giallorossi equalizing in the last second of injury time, avoiding their first defeat after three consecutive victories in the league. Bitter ending for the Viola, who would have deserved the three points more for the goals they created, but they paid for yet another error from the spot, committed by Biraghi, which would have brought them 3-1 at 36′ of the second half. De Rossi’s team thus remains fifth, keeping its other Champions rivals at a distance, while Fiorentina remains five points distant.

Ready to go and Roma immediately came close to taking the lead in the 4th minute with Lukaku, who got rid of the marking well in the Viola area and shot without fail towards Terracciano, the Viola goalkeeper managed to clear the ball from the ground. A minute later Mancini brings down Sottil on the left, resulting in a yellow card for Massa. The Viola response came in the 6th minute with a bicycle kick from inside the six-yard box by Gonzalez, Ndicka touched just enough to deflect it into a corner. In the 13th minute Franchi remembered Davide Astori, six years after his death, with a long and thunderous applause.

And in the 19th minute Fiorentina took the lead: corner kick from the right by Maxime Lopez, headed into the area by Nico Gonzalez and diving from inside the small area, Ranieri headed in. Fiorentina starts the game, Roma tries to be dangerous with accelerations and bursts. In the 23rd minute the Viola came close to doubling their lead with Mandragora, but his powerful shot went just wide. One minute and Belotti has the ball at his feet to make it 2-0, but he finds the rebound in the corner from Svilar. In the 33rd minute De Rossi was forced to replace Mancini, who was booked and then ‘pardoned’ by referee Massa, for two fouls on Sottil and Belotti, with Huijsen. The match is a continuous reversal of actions and in the 35th minute Belotti cuts higher than anyone inside the Giallorossi area for Sottil who misses the lead from two steps with his head. Roma tried to play but were too nervous, and in the 37th minute Paredes was booked. One minute and yet another opportunity for Fiorentina, this time with Belotti who volleys after a rebound. Paredes clears almost on the goal line.

When the teams return for the start of the second half, Italiano leaves Nico Gonzalez in the locker room and inserts Ikone in his place. Roma have a different approach, more proactive in trying to recover the deficit. In the 12th minute Bonaventura gets a yellow card, a foul on Paredes, and since he is on a warning, Atalanta will miss out, and shortly after Roma equalizes: Dybala lights up and serves Angelino on the left, the low cross is deflected and arrives perfectly to Aouar who he beats Terracciano with a header. The game has changed and in the 61st minute the Giallorossi are close to taking the lead but inside the Viola area Cristante lacks the winning touch. But Fiorentina still believes in it and in the 24th minute finds the advantage again with Mandragor. De Rossi recalls Dybala and El Shaarawy and inserts Baldanzi and Zalewski.

Changes also for Fiorentina, with Duncan coming in for Sottil, author of an excellent performance. One minute and Belotti wins a penalty for a slight hold by Paredes: Captain Biraghi goes to the spot but has the shot saved. The last substitutions also arrived and in full injury time, beyond the 4′ given by referee Massa, Roma found the equalizer with Llorente who received the ball in the Viola area and beat Terracciano.
