Viola earn point against Empoli
Fiorentina ensured a share of the spoils late on Sunday as they came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 thanks to goals from striker Nikola Kalinic.
It was Alonso’s teasing cross after a good run down the left that enabled the substitute to convert his first of the afternoon on 55 minutes. Kalinic was again involved in the second when he tapped home from close range after good work from Khouma Babacar.
The result means that Fiorentina sit on 28 points behind Inter Milan at the top of Serie A.
