In the 90th minute of the match in Basel, we saw the same result as in the first match in Florence – 1:2.
Nicolas Gonzalez gave Fiorentina the lead with a goal in the 35th minute, and Ambuni equalized in the 55th minute. In the 72nd minute, Gonzalez again restored the lead to the visitors from Florence with a second goal.
In the second overtime, there was a short interruption because one fan in the stands got sick.
