Fiorentina was looking for redemption and found it on a rainy night in Edinburgh: in the pits of Tynecastle Park, the Viola team beat Hearts 3–0 thanks to goals from Mandragora and Kouamé in the first half and Jovic in the second half. A vital victory in the Conference League to stay in the race in their group (he is three points behind the stopped leaders Busksehir by Riga) but also to try to shake up the championship where they have struggled so far.
Viola passed after just 4 minutes with an assist from Terzik with a header from Mandragora. For the former grenade, deployed in place of the hurt Barak, it is the second goal of the season against Cremonese in the league after one. But above all there was a very heavy goal for the Italian team which was able to turn the game downhill. Not only that: Fiorentina got the advantage, who took the field with Jovic in the trident along with Koumea and Saponara (González would enter the final), Golini between positions, Surprise Terczyk in defense and Quarta still preferred Milenkovic ( He would enter at the start of the second half in place of Igor), the necessary blow and the first half was an absolute domination and several opportunities to double, with Jovic, Igor (saving Gordon) and Mandragora again.
The doubling, however, was in the air and came just before the break with a spectacular half-reversal by Couamé, a player who was re-launched by the Italian (the Ivorian striker’s rush to hug the coach after the goal was crucial). was) and had already scored a month’s score. against Juventus. A more deserving result for a Fiorentina who gave hearts very little in the first half of the game: Golini intervened on Ginelli only once after Saponara’s mistake.
In the second half, the Scots remained in ten due to Nielsen’s expulsion for a foul on Jovic as the last man, at which point Viola (among whom the young White also made his debut) controlled the match more easily. , despite some setbacks the pride of the opponents who never really became dangerous, and on a counterattack they sought all three. Joe arrived ten minutes from the end with the most anticipated and perhaps the most talked about man, Luka Jovic, who took full advantage of Koume’s suggestion. The Serbian striker, who arrived from Real Madrid in the summer, had not scored in Europe since 2019 when he played for Eintracht: the last goal went back to the Europa League semi-final with Chelsea, then led by Sarri. Finally purple under 700 Florentine fans field for the party.
