Fiorentina beat Roma, go 7th in Serie A

Nicolas Gonzalez of ACF Fiorentina scores first goal from the penalty spot during the Serie A match between ACF Fiorentina and AS Roma on May 9, 2022 in Florence, Italy.


Fiorentina have defeated Roma 2-0 in Serie A to revive their chances of qualifying for Europe following three straight losses.

Nicolas Gonzalez converted a fifth-minute penalty and Giacomo Bonaventura doubled the advantage after only 11 minutes in Florence on Monday night.

The hosts move up to seventh place, level on points with sixth-placed Roma and eighth-placed Atalanta.

Lazio are fifth with 62 points, followed by Roma (59), Fiorentina (59) and Atalanta (59).

While the Champions League places are already set with AC Milan, Inter Milan, Napoli and Juventus assured of finishing in the top four with two matches remaining, the Europa League and Conference League places are still up for grabs.

The fifth and sixth-placed finishers will qualify for the Europa League, and the seventh-placed finisher possibly goes to the Conference League.

If Roma beat Feyenoord in the Conference League final on May 25 and don't finish in the top six, Italy will have three teams in the Europa League and none in the Conference League, because the Conference League champion qualifies for the Europa League.
