Reggina got the game started and they looked a little shaky early on. The Calabrian side have been struggling and they are desperate for points. Fiorentina on the other hand have been blowing hot and cold, but they started this game well. Santana fed Pazzini in the first minute but the hit-man was wrongly flagged offside. Nevio Orlandi’s side was lucky to escape as Pazzini was through on goal and he would have scored.

Alberto Gilardino started this one on the bench with, perhaps, the Champions League in mind but he was hardly missed though as Pazzini was being the nuisance up front. Jovetic was playing just behind and he was outstanding, putting pinpoint passes for fun. Reggina hardly had a look in as the Viola created all the play. Chances were few and far between but to their credit, the relegation strugglers did put the home side in difficulty as Viggiani pulled the strings.

At times Fiorentina would take their feet off the gas and this allowed the Amaranto, who were playing in their white strip, to enjoy possession and pass their way around. With Adrian Mutu still out with injury, Jovetic took over free kick duties but his effort was poor following Cirillo’s foul on Pazzini. Seconds later Kuzmanovic played a delightful angled ball into the path of Pazzini but he was late coming in and just missed contact.

Jovetic was in inspirational form as he left Lanzaro for dead following Comotto’s cross but the Montenegrin’s strike was charged down by Cirillo. Both teams fought hard but neither had the cutting edge up front. La Viola always looked more likely to score but they panicked in the final third. Reggina soon settled down and began to find their rhythm although at times both sides played some uninspiring football. Jovetic was by far the best player on the pitch and he stung Campagnolo’s hands with a powerful drive. It was a rocket of a shot but the Reggina man did well to stop it hitting the back of the net.

The Calabrian’s hardly created any chances worthy of mention as the Tuscan side dealt with every threat comfortably. Gobbi came closest for Fiorenina when he was set up by Jovetic but his powerful drive zoomed just over the cross bar as Cesare Prandelli’s side kept banging on the door. Things got worse for Reggina after Santana was hacked by Campagnolo in the box. The goalkeeper was sent off and a penalty was given. It was rather harsh. Pazzini stepped and calmly slotted home by sending substitute goalkeeper Puggioni the wrong way. Reggina had no reply as the home side went into the break a goal to the good.

Second Half

The Viola began the second half where they left off and it was Kuzmanovic who tested Puggioni straight away as he tried his luck from distance with a powerful effort. The Calabrian’s were under the cosh again and they knew they had their work cut out. It was always going to be tough with ten men and Orlandi knew it as he jumped around the dug out in frustration, thinking about what might have been if things were level on the pitch.

Things almost got worse for the coach when Jovetic raced through only to scuff his shot wide as he left Cirillo chasing thin air. Fiorentina were toying with their opponents as they kept the ball well and made Reggina chase hard. The gap in class was clear to see as the away side struggled. The Amaranto had lost their previous three away games coming into this one and they were heading for their fourth away loss of term. Just one goal scored on the road this term and it didn’t look like they would get another against the Viola.

To their credit, the Reggio Calabria side battled away and did what they could. Lanzaro made he most of some space down on the right and found Cozza unmarked in the box but the playmaker’s header went over the bar. Frey hardly moved as the Viola escaped unscathed.

Fiorentina stepped off the gas and Reggina sent the warning shots but they couldn’t pull one back as the numerical disadvantage showed. Supersub Alberto Gilardino made sure of the points on 75 minutes to grab his fifth goal of the season as he beat the offside trap and beat Puggioni with an exemplary finish following Montolivo’s excellent pass. The Italian internationals combined well to ensure their side picked up the win they deserved.

The scoring did not stop there though as the Viola grabbed a third. Gilardino bagged his brace as a howler from Puggioni allowed the Italian to slot home into an unguarded net. The Reggina 'Keeper came, saw but never conquered the long ball as it went over him in an calamity of a mistake.
