15:27 VAR – Not a penalty!

Inevitable change of mind after viewing that again, Zerbin if anything fouled Duda.

14:24 Monza chance

Colpani angled drive flashes across the face of goal and goes wide.

14:22 Lecce so close

Bologna get into a horrible tangle playing their way out from defence, Freuler error, Krstovic pounces only to prod it wide of almost an open goal!

14:20 Oh Monza!

How did that not go in? Birindelli diving header forces a desperate save out of Montipo’, then Colpani clumsily scuffs the rebound!

14:19 Save on Lecce!

Kaba header is powerful and going under the bar until the Skorupski save!

14:16 Bologna chance

Zirkzee fresh-air shot from 14 yards, then Saelemaekers blasts over the bar. Big double chance.

13:27 Fiorentina 5-1 Frosinone match report

 

 

13:26 FT: Fiorentina 5-1 Frosinone

13:21 Barak again

At least he did actually attempt to get his head to that this time, missed the Biraghi cross, it hit his defender and into the arms of Turati.

13:18 Fiorentina 5-1 Frosinone: Antonin Barak!

Barak literally scored that by accident. Bonaventura pull back from the by-line for Nzola, sliding in forces a save from Turati, in an attempt to nod it clear, Mazzitelli knocks it onto the head of Barak and it ricochets in off his face. Had no idea what was happening!

13:15 Fiorentina change

Barak on for Beltran

13:14 Bonaventura grazes the upright!

That was so close! Valeri error sparks a counter, Bonaventura angled drive shaves a coat of paint off the far post!

13:12 Reinier over

Cross stood up by Lirola for a Reinier header over the bar. Fiorentina have visibly taken their foot off the gas.

13:10 Frosinone change

Cheddira replaces Gelli.

13:05 Fiorentina changes

Arthur, Comuzzo and Nzola on, Belotti, Martinez-Quarta and Duncan off

13:05 Terracciano save

Kaio Jorge allowed a free header, Terracciano had to make the reaction save!

12:52 Fiorentina change

Bonaventura on for Nico Gonzalez.

12:51 Frosinone chance

Promising cross for Kaio Jorge, who seems to misjudge the flight of the ball and can’t get it under control at the back post.

12:50 Liverani new Salernitana coach

 

 

12:48 Terracciano save

Martinez-Quarta robbed by Kaio Jorge, whose angled drive is denied by Terracciano’s outstretched boot.

12:46 Fiorentina 4-0 Frosinone: Nico Gonzalez!

Spectacular, acrobatic volley into the roof of the net! With his weaker right foot, too!

12:43 Romagnoli booked

Romagnoli just came on, booked for hauling back Belotti.

12:38 2nd half kicks off: Fiorentina 3-0 Frosinone

12:36 Frosinone changes

Lirola and Romagnoli on, Seck and Monterisi off.

12:20 Half-Time: Fiorentina 3-0 Frosinone

Wobbly start, but the Viola now lead with goals from Andrea Belotti, Jonathan Ikone (deflected) and Lucas Martinez-Quarta.

12:16 Fiorentina 3-0 Frosinone: Lucas Martinez-Quarta!

There was a little confusion there, as the header on a corner bounced off the underside of the bar, hit the line and went back out, but the goal-line technology beeped!

 

 

12:16 Save on Duncan

Alfred Duncan left-foot strike from outside the box, Turati palms it round the upright.

12:13 Soule over

Barrenechea good run sets up Soule, cuts inside and fires over the bar.

12:10 Nico, no!

Oh that is a bad miss! So unlike him, too. Ikone pulls back from the right and Nico Gonzalez is totally unmarked, somehow fires wide from 10 yards!

12:09 Mazzitelli effort

Mazzitelli probably offside anyway, but he fired straight at Terracciano too.

12:08 Frosinone win a corner

Soule free kick to Kaio Jorge, whose overhead kick is deflected off Martinez-Quarta.

12:02 Viola looking comfortable

After a very nervy start, the two-goal cushion has visibly boosted their confidence. But we know Fiorentina too well to take anything for granted…

11:57 Almost 3-0

Spectacular Belotti flicked pass off the outside of the boot from the touchline, Mandragora at full stretch can’t quite steer the finish on target under pressure from Okoli.

11:52 Fiorentina 2-0 Frosinone: Jonathan Ikone!

He created the first goal, now scores the second! Nico Gonzalez found Dunca in the centre, spread to the right for Ikone and a lot of luck there, because the curler took a big deflection off Okoli!

 

 

11:49 Fiorentina 1-0 Frosinone: Andrea Belotti!

Il Gallo gets his first goal for the Viola! Ikone bursts with a change of pace down the right and pulls it back from the by-line for Belotti to acrobatically volley in from six yards!

 

 

11:48 Seck effort

Demba Seck cuts inside from the right and his left-foot shot is charged down. Move started by Soule.

11:45 Fiorentina off the bar!

General Chaos from a corner! Beltran header at the back post, bounces off the bar, then Martinez-Quarta header cleared off the line, before Ikone finally blasts over!

11:45 Frosinone once more

Harroui can’t quite get control of the Soule cross on the counter.

11:41 Frosinone again

Gelli pulls back from the by-line, Fiorentina struggle to get it clear. The hosts have not started at all well.

11:38 Martinez-Quarta booked

Well he’s having a nightmare opening five minutes. Booked for going in high and late on Soule.

11:36 Frosinone chance

Martinez Quarta first touch is disastrous, sends Kaio Jorge clear on goal, but Terracciano rushes out to smother at his feet!

11:34 We have kick-off in Fiorentina vs. Frosinone!

11:32 Remembering Kurt Hamrin

Fiorentina are wearing black armbands and there will be a minute’s silence for Viola legend Kurt Hamrin.

Frosinone: Turati; Gelli, Monterisi, Okoli, Valeri; Mazzitelli, Barrenechea, Harroui; Soule, Kaio Jorge, Seck

11:25 Eusebio Di Francesco (Frosinone)

“The lads are working really well, we brought in two genuine full-backs in January after using midfielders to fill the gaps. Honestly, it’s a pity our away record is so poor, as we often deserved more, but we will try to break that trend today. Results are important, but they have to go through performances.”

11:11 Vincenzo Italiano (Fiorentina)

“It is a negative period, we are making too many mistakes and there were moments when we lost focus. There has to be more concentration today. We are inconsistent in so many different ways, including our approach, we can’t seem to pour forward from the start. Nico Gonzalez is fine, he has started to intensify his training and I hope he can increase his stamina today. Nico is too important for us, we missed him so much. Bonaventura, Arthur, Sottil and Nzola are on the bench, they can come on and change the game.”

11:02 Salernitana: Inzaghi sacked

It is now official, Salernitana have sacked Pippo Inzaghi. Fabio Liverani is set to become their third coach of the season, as Paulo Sousa was fired in October 2023.
