Torino wins against Fiorentina at the Artemio-Franchi stadium


For the last meeting of the day in Serie A, counting for the 19th day, Fiorentina received Torino at the Artemio-Franchi stadium in Florence. Respectively 9th and 8th and therefore residents of the soft underbelly of the Italian championship, the two teams had to achieve a result to beat and distance a direct competitor for the qualifying places for the European cups at the end of the season. While the pace was rather shy at the start of the match despite a few saves from the Florentine goalkeeper on Turin strikes, the game definitely got carried away at the half-hour mark. Christian Kouamé was the first to be dangerous by taking over a fleeing cross but Vanja Milinkovic-Savic made a superb parry on the ground to get the ball out (30th). A few minutes later, the visitors opened the scoring thanks to a long and slender strike from Alexeï Mirantchouk who found the opposite corner of Pietro Terracciano (33rd, 1-0).
