VIDEO: Croatian duo star as Fiorentina shock Juventus in Serie APublished January 16, 2017
Fiorentina produced an upset to beat Serie A holders Juventus and earn a memorable 2-1 win at the Stadio Artemio Franchi thanks to strikes from Nicola Kalinic and Milan Badelj.
The Viola played with energy and aggression throughout against their illustrious opponents and roared into a deserved two-goal lead as the Croatian pair netted either side of half-time.
Big-money summer signing Gonzalo Higuain pulled one back for Juve with just over 30 minutes left on the clock, but Paulo Sousa’s men saw the game out to claim an important three points.
Fiorentina move up to 8th following the win, with Juventus now a sole point clear of AS Roma at the top of the table.
