Match report: Cagliari 1-1 Fiorentina

Cagliari drew 1-1 against Fiorentina at Unipol Domus: a balanced contest from the first minute to the last. Both teams battled out an high-intensity encounter. The Rossoblù have some regrets because Joao Pedro missed the chance of the 2-0 penalty, then Fiorentina restored the parity when there were 15 minutes to close the game.

In the first half Cagliari has two big chances to score the 1-0: at 25’ Joao Pedro hits the post from close range, then at 45’ Marin hits the post with a free-kick. Finally, the hosts took the lead early in the second period, courtesy of Joao Pedro’s stunning header. Then the Rossoblù has the chance to double, again with Joao Pedro: Terracciano saves the penalty.

In the 75th minute Sottil takes advantage of a Marin mistake and scores the 1-1. In the last stages of the match Mazzarri tried to win the match with more forwards on the pitch, but the Fiorentina defense never gave an inch. Cagliari-Fiorentina ends all square.
