    Time:90'
    • Fiorentina
    • Bari
    • 90+4 Nope, that's it, right on four minutes the ref blows, even though he surely should have added another 30 seconds for the goal. Odd. Fiorentina win, they are off the bottom and for now out of the drop zone.
    • 90+3 Bari have been revitalised from those last two incidents and are pushing for an unlikely leveller.
    • 90+2 AMAZING DOUBLE SAVE FROM GILLET! Worth a point on its own. Montolivo down the left gave a simple far-post finish to Gila but somehow Gillet hurled himself at it and, with Waigo ready to knock the rebound home, the Belgian flew out like a panther to smother the finish.
    • 90+1 Four minutes injury time being played. Bari work the corner into the box but cleared. Gila is back defending to put it out for a corner on the right... GOAL! Parisi with a bullet header from Rivas's corner! Bari back in it!!
    • 90' Bari clear after Montolivo loses control of the ball in a good position on the edge of the box. Now Salv Masiello comes forward and wins a corner on the left.
    • 89' Belmonte pops up on the right and as everyone expects a cross he shoots instead, but well wide.
    • 88' Fiorentina playing keep ball now as they push Bari further and further back.
    • 87' Andrea Masiello clearly pulling Comotto all over the place. Free-kick.
    • 86' FIORENTINA SUB: Bolatti on for Ljacic, who gets a standing ovation.
    • 84' Well that should ease the pressure on Mihajlovic. Fiorentina can play out the win now.
    • 82' 2-0! Finally something happens this half as Gilardino takes the ball on the chest and smacks it in from an angle. That came after a good save from Gillet from Ljacic's shot when the Serb raced down the left from halfway. Bari were opened up on the break.
    • 80' FIORENTINA SUB: Gamberini on for Natali as Fiorentina look to solidify at the back.
    • 79' Bari on the counter and Barreto is in but what a tackle! Great sliding challenge of the old school by Gamberini. Ha ha. Almiron with a clear trip on Pasqual, he finds it funny but again he could have been sent off.
    • 78' Ghezzal cuts a frustrated figure on the left as a ball sails over his head.
    • 77' Marchionni plays a dangerous ball in but cleared by Bari.
    • 76' BARI SUB: Alvarez off for D'Alessandro.
    • 75' Pasqual is still pretending to be injured. What a nonsense. Be a man! Get up!
    • 74' Almiron could be in trouble as Pasqual hits the deck after a collision. He just ran into him, rather cynically but not enough to hurt him. Pasqual is making a meal of it, rolling around in embarassing fashion and the referee - possibly mindful of the ludicrous over-reaction, takes no action on Almiron when he could have easily shown a second yellow.
    • 72' Bari could be in here as Alvarez is totally free on the right but a terrible ball, what a waste, way too deep and out on the left.
    • 71' This second half has been dreadfully scrappy. The first half was a decent game of football, this a veritable nothing.
    • 69' FIORENTINA SUB: Papa Waigo on for Santana.
    • 67' Both are booked. Temper temper boys, the ref did warn you.
    • 66' It kicks off again between Pasqual and Belmonte... Pasqual fouled Alvarez and they are getting lairy.
    • 65' I don't think there was a card in the end, just the ref holding his fingers and thumb together and pleading for everyone to rein it in. Drop ball...
    • 64' It's kicking off! No surprises that Ghezzal is involved, he loves a row, Gilardino too and a whole load of others have joined in... Montolivo is called over...
    • 63' Almiron with a sweeping ball wide, and he gets it back from Alvarez. Poor ball inside though, back with Frey.
    • 62' Donadel is booked retrospectively for a foul that the ref waved on with Bari holding advantage.
    • 61' Ghezzal smacks one over from range.
    • 60' A high ball is aimed at Gila but he misses it totally and Parisi sweeps up.
    • 58' Ljacic fires well wide after a raid counter attack caught Bari cold. Gila almost got through but eventually they got men back, who closed Ljacic down to make the shot difficult.
    • 56' Almiron is rather harshly booked for climbing over Montolivo to win a header after the Fiorentina man made him a back. I never realised that was a bookable offence, and neither did he.
    • 55' Marchionni with a cyncal tug on Ghezzal as he ran past halfway and he earns a yellow.
    • 54' Alvarez plays Ghezzal in but the flag is up, Bari awake now.
    • 53' A rare move forward by Bari as Rivas gets into space but his cross is cleared.
    • 51' Bari look a bit lost at the moment. Fiorentina would do well to punish them early in this half.
    • 50' Oh what a shame. A lovely one-touch passing move is finished by the deftest of chips from Ljacic after a delicious throug-hball by Santana - but the flag is up. Boo.
    • 49' Fiorentina cagily knock it about with Bari very deep.
    • 48' Pretty sluggish start to the half as neither side click straight back into it.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • 46' BARI SUB: Rivas on for Castillo.
    • 45+2 Half-time, that super Donadel strike has given Fiorentina a 1-0 lead!
    • 45+2 Marchionni gets down the right and crosses low but close to Gillet, who claims.
    • 45+1 One minute added time being played. Ghezzal eventually gets up. We'll have another for that.
    • 45' Ghezzal is down hurt. Comotto caught him while making the block. That could easily have been given as a penalty.
    • 44' Alvarez finds Barreto, who slips the ball to GHEZZAL but Comotto flies in to block his shot and it's wide for a corner.
    • 43' Ghezzal finds Barreto who offloads it to Castillo. Good short passing until Donati's ball wide right is headed out by Pasqual.
    • 42' Gila threads Marchionni through but the flag is up. That was close.
    • 40' Frey struggles to control a backpass but he gets the clearance away with Barreto bearing down on him.
    • 39' Great play from Ljacic to wriggle away and free Pasqual, but the cross-shot is well fielded by Gillet at his near post.
    • 38' Santana wins a free-kick on the left but headed clear. Bari on the rack now.
    • 37' Montolivo turns and gets clear of Almiron and he fires a brilliant drive to the top left but palmed away by Gillet! Great save!
    • 36' Well that was some goal. Fiorentina started poorly but have improved and deserve the lead now.
    • 35' DONADEL! WHAT A GOAL! A beautiful lob of power and precision from the right side of the box after he spotted Gillet off his line, anticipating a cross. 1-0 Fiorentina!
    • 34' Fiorentina keep it simple, playing it along the ground from left to right.
    • 33' Pasqual has a throw on the left, won by the energetic Santana.
    • 31' Some lovely passing sees Alvarez free on the right but his low cross is weak, hoofed away by Pasqual.
    • 30' Comotto hurls himself to the ground as Donati takes the ball off him, it was a nudge but the reaction is OTT and the referee has a word with the Fiorentina full-back.
    • 29' Ljacic comes forward and looks to Gila, who finds Santana on the left. Now Donadel gets hold of it but he plays a hospital ball wide to Comotto. Marchionni picks up the pieces but his cross is too close to Gillet.
    • 28' Belmonte surges forward and cuts it inside from the right but Barreto's flick is beyond Castillo.
    • 27' Some confident passing from the hosts now, a bit too confident from Comotto though as he sends a crossfield ball out for a throw.
    • 26' Montolivo has a pop from range but over the bar. This is more like the Fiorentina we know.
    • 25' Great save Gillet! From Marchionni, who was put in on the right by a superb tackle-through-ball combination by Ljacic.
    • 24' Great cross in from Santana that Gila misses and Pasqual attacks but he heads it wide! He flicked it on beatifully but it spun just beyond the far post!
    • 23' Gilardino tumbles to the deck in a tangle with Masiello and the referee blows... for offside.
    • 22' Natali bundles Alvarez over but no foul, just a throw.
    • 21' Almiron on a trademark surging run wins a free-kick on halfway. He has always looked such a good player, I never understood why he was never in favour at Juve.
    • 20' Barreto finds Almiron as Bari keep hold of the ball patiently before Donati gives it away.
    • 19' Ljacic to take from the left.... Poor, low and straight to Almiron, the first man. Parisi brings it clear.
    • 18' Santana fails to keep it in on the left, but he wins a free-kick with some good closing down, drawing a tug from Belmonte.
    • 17' Groans from the crowd as Comotto is sold short by Donadel. A lull has ensued.
    • 15' Alvarez's corner is too close to Frey and the Frenchman claims under the far post.
    • 14' Almiron on the ball, lovely backheel from Barreto to play Almiron in but nicked away by Gamberini just as the Bari midfielder was ready to finish. Corner.
    • 13' Santana pounces on Belmonte's mistake but his cut-back is poor. The loose ball does spin away to Montolivo though, who turns inside and shoots but well held by Gillet at his near post.
    • 13' Santana gets hold of the ball on the left and as it opens up he drills in a low shot that Gillet just watches into the side netting at his near post.
    • 12' Pasqual gets down the left, lots of space, but Andrea Masiello kicks to touch.
    • 11' Gilardino dives in to meet a Montolivo centre but he was offside and heads wide anyway.
    • 10' Barreto takes a tumnle but Gamberini got the ball, points the ref.
    • 9' Marchionni races down the right to meet Montolivo's ball wide, and while he manages to get the cross in it is too close to Gillet.
    • 8' Almiron surprises Bari by shooting but Frey punches clear! Almost dipped under the bar at the near post. The ball is sent back into the Viola box but the flag is up.
    • 7' Barreto on the left slides Castillo in but Frey gets there first. Bari get a free-kick though, on the left-hand edge of the box as Comotto pulled the Brazilian back.
    • 6' Belmonte slides in and gives away a corner. Santana puts it in but Gillet claims.
    • 5' Fiorentina with a spell of possession but Bari are solid in defence and nothing has been fed yet to Gila...
    • 4' Montolivo comes forward but a poor ball, aimless, and Bari clear. Easy to see why Fiorentina are bottom - despite the good players they are lacking confidence.
    • 3' Fiorentina briefly get hold of the ball but give it away soon afterwards.
    • 2' Bari start well, with Alvarez putting in a low cross that Barreto can't reach, but then they are forced all the way back to their penalty area.
    • 1' The first half is underway at Stadio Artemio Franchi!
    • 19:40 Viola manager Sinisa Mihajlovic finds his side bottom, somehow, although a win would take them out of the drop zone for now and probably the weekend.
    • 19:35 TEAMS - Fiorentina: Frey, Comotto, Gamberini, Natali, Pasqual, Montolivo, Donadel, Marchionni, Santana, Ljacic, Gilardino /// Bari: Gillet, Belmonte, Masiello, Parisi, Masiello, Donati, Almiron, Alvarez, Ghezzal, Castillo, Barreto
