The draw snaps La Viola’s nine-match winning streak in all competitions while Leonardo Semplici’s men secured a valuable point, increasing the space between themselves and 18th placed Hellas Verona by seven points.
The Ligurians frustrated the hosts throughout the affair. Vincenzo Italiano’s side struggled to create high quality chances, unable to breakdown the visitors defensive, counter-attacking approach. Although they tallied nearly 20 shots, Fiorentina ended the game with an xG (expected goals) under 1.00 in total.
After the break, neither side created a meaningful chance to score another goal, settling for a 1-1 draw.
