- Mentor Stefano Pioli praised the 300th Serie A match of his administration vocation. nLuis Muriel scored a support on his Serie A presentation and it took him only four minutes to include another here. A free kick was not cleared legitimately, a give-and-go sent the Colombian clear and he terminated into the top of the net from a tight edge.
- Chievo battled back quickly, Sergio Pellissier squirming between two safeguards to move crosswise over for Mariusz Stepinski, whose shot cut the outside of the upstanding.

Be that as it may, Fiorentina were exceptionally appreciative to VAR, since it indicated Pellissier had one foot on hold – and in this way was considered inside the crate – when Lafont took the goal kick, so the goal was prohibited.

- Similarly as the hosts were pouring forward, Fiorentina reestablished their lead on the counter-assault. Chiesa sprung the offside device in a tight choice, burst down the left and nestled into his correct boot from the most impenetrable of points.
When Salcedo was in Fiorentina, he told me that sometimes coaches decide to give minutes to newcomers right away, so he can better understand the player. Important to see Setien give all these minutes to Lainez to start off his time in Spain. #ElTrieng
