Fiorentina extended their unbeaten run to five games across all competitions (W4 D1) with a 2-1 Serie A (SA) win over in-form AC Milan at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Viola goalkeeper Pietro Terracciano was largely a spectator up to this point, but was forced to keep out Olivier Giroud’s first-time shot after the Frenchman was superbly picked out by Ismaël Bennacer.
After failing to find a breakthrough before the interval, Fiorentina were awarded a penalty just two minutes after the restart when Tomori clumsily challenged Jonathan Ikoné, and González made no mistake from the spot to give the hosts a well-deserved lead.
Giroud then almost restored parity with another header, this time from a corner, but Terracciano was there to deny the French forward once again.
The goal seemed to spark a previously dormant Milan side to life, as Terracciano made himself big to thwart Theo Hernández.
However, it was Italiano’s men that came close to extending their lead, but Dodô was unable to poke the ball past Maignan following a mazy run through Milan’s defence.
There wasn’t enough time for a complete comeback, so it was a dismal evening for the Rossoneri, whose run of three consecutive victories without conceding came to an end.
