Viola’s Resurgence: Returning to European Contention After Four Winless Matches


The Fiorentina showcased their prowess on Sunday, defeating Frosinone 5-1 under the guidance of Argentine Nico González, whose goal marked his triumphant return to top form. This victory propels them back into European contention after a four-match winless streak.

It was Nico González’s first start following a seven-game absence due to injury since December 14th, and the ‘Viola’ reveled in his comeback. With four consecutive Serie A matches without a win and just one point earned, their Champions League aspirations were fading, casting doubt on their season.

However, with González back in action, the ‘Fiore’ transformed. They dominated from start to finish against a hapless Frosinone side that couldn’t thwart Vincenzo Italiano’s men.

Argentine Lucas Beltrán came close in the 11th minute with a header against the post, and four minutes later, the hosts found the breakthrough. It took just 15 minutes in the purple shirt for Italian Andrea Belotti, on loan from Roma, to rediscover his scoring touch.

Three minutes later, Frenchman Jonathan Ikoné extended the lead with a shot that grazed the defense, eluding the Frosinone goalkeeper’s attempt. Twenty minutes of relentless pressure that ‘La Fiore’ capitalized on.

And just before halftime came the clincher with Argentine Lucas Martínez-Quarta’s goal, a header that found the top corner and required the referee’s clock to validate.

In the second half, Nico González wasted no time in sealing his outstanding performance with the goal of the match, an unstoppable volley with his weaker foot that made it 4-0, prolonging the celebration in Florence.

Only Italian Luca Mazzitelli’s free-kick goal tarnished the festivities, which were reignited by Czech Antonin Barak in the 85th minute to conclude the match on a high note.

Nico González found his form once again, and ‘La Fiore’ reconnected with victory, placing them sixth in the standings, while Frosinone endured their third winless match, remaining five points clear of relegation.
