Tello double saves Fiorentina in Serie A

Press Association logoPress Association 1/02/2017

Cristian Tello's second-half double denied Pescara just their second Serie A win of the season as Fiorentina secured a last-gasp 2-1 victory at Stadio Adriatico.

Massimo Oddo's struggling side have only registered one victory this term, in August, and that only came because Sassuolo played an ineligible player in their 2-1 win.

The hosts began the brighter, though, and deservedly took the lead on 15 minutes when Cristiano Biraghi slipped in Gianluca Caprari, who tucked the ball into the bottom right corner from 16 yards.

Fiorentina winger Josip Ilicic hit the post with a left-footed curling free-kick on 54 minutes but La Viola were level midway through the second half.

On-loan Barcelona forward Tello shuffled his way into space and fired home into the top corner on 68 minutes.

Ilicic blazed over on 83 minutes when well placed but it mattered little as Tello's cross evaded everyone and crept into the far post in the fifth minute of added time.
