Diametrically opposed states of mind for a challenge on one side highly anticipated, as a last hope to get a place in the Conference League, and certainly less relevant for a Juve already sure of fourth place and now projected towards the future. There Fiorentina welcomes the rival of all time in an overcrowded Franchi with the imperative to get the three points on the last day of A leagueto be sure to participate in the Conference next season and avoid Atalanta tripping.
The first big chance is Viola: Bonaventura scores with his left foot, the ball deflected for a corner by the Juventus defense in the 20 ‘. Bonaventura himself also tries with his right foot and finds a new deviation for a corner: Viola close to 1-0. The ball possession data is clearly in favor of the Viola and at 45 ‘the goal also arrives: he scores it Duncan left, after a convulsive action in the area, exploiting a ball offered by Bonaventura on the fly.
Fiorentina also tries at the start of the second half with Nico Gonzalez, shot with the left high on the crossbar and then an attempt from distance, unrealistic. The Viola send Ikoné to Saponara to give unpredictability, Allegri responds by giving space to Vlahovic, a former luxury player, in the final. To report the double miracle of Pinsoglio, with the viola close to 2-0. A situation however irrelevant for the final outcome: in the recovery Nico Gonzalez closes the scores on a penalty, due to a clear foul by Bonucci. The Viola return to Europe, gaining access to the Conference.
Predictable tactical script, with Fiorentina taking possession and managing the game against a Juve attentive in defense and ready to leave on the counterattack and with balls served in the spaces left by the viola. Bianconeri mentally free and without ranking pressure, the Viola for their part do not rush the times, through the usual network of passes, and often arrive at the cross.
To underline the particularly central position of Nico Gonzalez, ready to make room for Venuti on the wing. At the end of the first half and even after the goal, the Viola push, with the strength of their motivations, Juve on their own is limited to containing. As the minutes go by, the pace becomes staid, with the viola interested in managing the advantage and able to bring the result to the end.
Fiorentina projected forward at the end of the first half, gives the impression of being able to find the goal at any moment and passes in advantage with Duncan: confused action in which all the lily motivations come out and which results in a left that causes the Franchi to explode in a key moment.
Author of a great first half, assist to Duncan (the other best among the viola) but not only: he serves his teammate, from the ground, the ball of 1-0 and already for the whole first half he proves to be the most dangerous among the men of Italian, touching the goal on two occasions.
