Cagliari defeating Fiorentina with an almost empty stadium.   It’s an important home victory because it keeps Cagliari getting farther from relegation zone.  Bad news is for Fiorentina seeing their chances to reach the 3rd position difficult.

Things not going well for Fiorentina when Referee Mazzoleni grants a penalty to Cagliari in the 38th minute.  The penalty conceded by Fiorentina defender Facundo Roncaglia after a foul in the penalty area on forward Marco Sau.  Taking the penalty spot is forward Mauricio Pinilla while the fans raise their support.  Pinilla with full concentration as carrying all the pressure gets set… than, voila’…. Pinilla converts the penalty with a right footed shot defeating Fiorentina goalkeeper Norberto Neto in the high center! This is the 4th goal this season for Pinilla.
First half ends 39% ball possession Cagliari and 61% ball possession Fiorentina.
