Vincenzo Italiano, Igor, Antonín Barák, and Riccardo Saponara all turned their aspect a bit as they walked in. The one shock was Christian Kouamé’s nod, however largely due to Luka Jović’s harm and Arthur’s want for relaxation. Initially, Cabral. Marco Baroni went with Lorenzo Colombo on the striker and left all the things else the identical.
As we predicted, Lecce put a variety of strain from the beginning, attempting to squeeze Fiorentina again and win the ball from above. They have been profitable within the first 10 minutes as Viola could not get previous midfield, however the good guys began to grasp after that, however they nonetheless had some dangerous turnovers in tense positions. Certainly, regardless of a couple of promising strikes within the first half hour, the company barely bought the ball into the penalty space. The breakthrough got here with an attractive Saponara cross for Nico González, whom the hapless Antonino Gallo was his personal internet underneath heavy strain.
Giallorossi had a couple of half probabilities afterwards, however felt that Viola had dealt with issues fairly effectively by attempting to separate the guests on the break and placing collectively a couple of very nice strikes. When the whistle sounded (with no pause time), it sounded just like the Viola had overtaken it.
Fiorentina was a lot better within the second half, apart from one mistake proper after the break that compelled Pietro Terracciano to a giant save at Federico Di Francesco. The gamers stored the ball transferring quick and Lecce’s depth dropped, permitting them to manage the tempo and see issues simply regardless of some persistent fouls from Salentini and a few slightly erratic dealing with by Romario abisso. Certainly, Lecce was unfortunate to not add another late as he threw the kitchen sink ahead, however Riccardo Sottil specifically wasn’t positive sufficient when he was getting again to health. Nonetheless, the crew doesn’t complain in regards to the win, even when it isn’t probably the most fashionable.

The win places Fiorentina in ninth place regardless of Bologna and Turin by 37 factors and simply 1 behind juventus seventh place (although the Juvenuts have one recreation in hand). This was a notable stretch for the membership: 4 wins in a row in Serie A (their highest since 2018), 7 wins in all competitions (additionally their highest since 2018) and 9 unbeaten in all competitions. A troublesome win in opposition to the helpless opposition can also be maybe one of the best signal that the mentally fragile aspect we noticed earlier this 12 months is gone. It is an attractive day.
