Fiorentina staged the comeback of the season on Sunday in Serie A as the Viola came from 2-behind against Juventus to win the match 4-2.
At the break the Bianconeri seemed a shoo-in for the three points.
Late first half goals from Carlos Tevez and Paul Pogba had put Juventus in the box seat at the break, and few people could have predicted that Fiorentina could turn the match. But in an inspired second half, Fiorentina did just that.
Giuseppe Rossi, who has returned this season in sparkling form after a year out with injury, swelled his season tally to 8 goals in 8 games with an amazing hat-trick. Joaquin also got on the scoresheet as the Viola record their first home win over Juve in 15 years.
Rossi said after the game: “They are three very important goals, but the team had an incredible performance in the second half. We reacted so well, we all wanted to fight back and it is down to everyone that we achieved it.”
