As it happened: Fiorentina - Juventus 1-2

24 April at 20:25
Juventus take on Fiorentina with two objectives in mind: firstly, the Bianconeri will be looking to make Napoli's Scudetto A ambitions look more and more like a mirage: 9 points ahead with just four games to go, a win here against detested rivals Fiorentina may provoke Napoli to implode tomorrow against Roma, who are also chasing the Partenopei in the race for second.

Fiorentina, for their part, have seen most of their hopes and dreams evaporate this year: first the Scudetto, then the Europa League...and now qualification for the Champions League. The fans are in revolt, ownership under siege from all sides, and manager Paulo Sousa isn't even sure to remain beyond this season. Nikola Kalinic doesn't score anymore, the team has won only one game in nine across all competitions.

Then again, grudge matches like these tend to bring out the unexpected...remember Fiorentina's 4-2 comeback against Antonio Conte's Juventus two seasons ago? Follow our LIVE coverage below!

He's a mean finisher that Mandzukic, isn't he? Fiorentina have a goal chalked off for offside... only for it to emerge that Andrea Barzagli clearly keeps Federico Bernardeschi ONSIDE. The Viola won't be happy, as like many other clubs they point the finger at Juve for what they see as a series of questionable refereeing decisions.
