" CAPTAIN SPEAKS Fiorentina captain German Pezzella understands this is a big win for his team but insists there is still a lot of work that needs to be done. Pezzella told Sky Sport Italia: “This win means a great deal to us and our fans. "Unfortunately, we haven’t given the supporters the joy they deserved in recent months, I’ve been here for four years and I know that it means to take on Juve. “We mustn’t see this as a turning point, because we still need to improve a great deal. "It does give us more confidence to face everything coming our way, because we want to reboot this season. ” ABOUT TIME Fiorentina just defeated Juventus for the first time away from home in the league since 2008.
The Viola opened the scoring just three minutes after kick-off with a beautiful dink by Dusan Vlahovic, who caught Juve off guard following an incredible pass by Franck Ribery. It all went downhill after that as Juan Cuadrado was sent off in the 18th minute with a straight red card following a review from VAR, which showed the former Chelsea man committing a dangerous tackle on Gaetano Castrovilli. Juventus had a goal by Cristiano Ronaldo overruled for offside and then saw Alex Sandro scoring an own goal after 76 minutes after he misread Cristiano Biraghi's cross.
