Marcos scores in Viola draw
Fiorentina held second-placed Napoli at home to keep up the pressure on third placed Roma at the top of Serie A.
Only goal difference separates the two sides now as the Viola take a point at home as they battle with the Giallorossi as the season reaches it’s decisive run-in. Next Friday the two sides meet in the capital.
Marcos Alonso’s glancing header from a corner put the home side 1-0 but Serie A top scorer Gonzalo Higuain equalised after the restart. Ironically Alonso had also shared a moment with Higuain earlier in his career when Marcos came off the bench to replace the Frenchman, making his Real Madrid senior debut.
Fiorentina twice had opportunities to win the game having hit the bar on two occasions.
