Roma striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo struck the only goal of the game.
â€śItâ€™s a bitter defeat, as we were fighting for a very important third place finish. I compliment the lads on an excellent performance and itâ€™s so disappointing because Fiorentina did not deserve to lose,â€ť said the Coach.
There were penalty appeals when Daniele De Rossi appeared to handle in the box, but the referee only awarded a corner.
â€śI donâ€™t talk about referees. De Rossi? He did move towards the ball... In any case, letâ€™s not get fossilised into one single incident. There are games with a certain story and this seemed like the photocopy of our Coppa Italia game.
â€śThe team gave its all, but this is football. Tomorrow we begin all over again.â€ť
