Serie A Results: Fiorentina vs Genoa ended on a dramatic 1-1 score card

A dramatic finish as it ended 1-1 between Fiorentina and Genoa, when Nikola Milenkovic grabbed the equaliser seven minutes into stoppages.

Marko Pjaca had given Genoa the lead after 89 minutes and the Rossoblu seemed to have nicked the match at the death, but with seven minutes added on, the Viola managed to respond.

Giacomo Bonaventura thought he had scored his first for Fiorentina, but his goal was ruled out for a foul in the build-up, whilst Mattia Destro directed one into the back of the net disallowed due to an offside position.

Genoa imposed a physical approach during the first half in Florence, but neither side really tested the shot stoppers in the first half at the Artemio Franchi.

Cristian Zapata pulled his hamstring and was forced off after 37 minutes, replaced by Paolo Ghiglione.

Dusan Vlahovic had the biggest chance after 40 minutes, when his header went just wide. The striker beat everyone, including the goalkeeper, in the air but couldn’t find the target.

Only a minute after Gaetano Castrovilli was forced off, he had been limping after a challenge early on. Giacomo Bonaventura replaced the playmaker.

Bonaventura should have done better after 52 minutes, as he’s completely unmarked and found with a cross from the right. But he doesn’t connect with the ball and his header is wide of the target from six yards out.

Bonaventura thought he had given Fiorentina the lead midway through the second half, as Sofyan Amrabat’s cross was extended by Dusan Vlahovic and the former Milan midfielder couldn’t miss from five yards this time.

But VAR called the referee to check the goal and found that Bonaventura had pulled down Lerager in the build-up to get a free path towards goal.

Mattia Destro had a goal disallowed for offside in the 87th minute, as he directed a long-range effort, but only seconds later Genoa were ahead anyway.

Marko Pjaca scored the winner, found with a neat through ball and the great first touch helps him bring it through on goal and the finish goes under Bartlomiej Dragowski in the Viola goal

Destro had a chance at the death to double the lead for Genoa, as he was played through on goal by Pjaca but his dink was this time stopped by the Polish goalkeeper.

Fiorentina did respond in stoppages, and with four attempts in quick succession, the ball eventually landed at the feet of defender Nikola Milenkovic, who got not only one but two chances to find the net.

He smashed it underneath the bar with the last kick of the match and made sure Fiorentina shared the spoils with sorry Genoa.
