Hegazy makes the bench for the second game in a row as Fiorentina beat Livorno

Hegazy benched

Fiorentina defender Ahmed Hegazy made it to the Viola’s bench for the 2nd consecutive time as his side managed to beat the officially relegated Livorno.

After appearing in the squad that played Sassuolo last week, the 23-year-old Egyptian was present again in Fiorentina’s win against Livorno, but still didn’t get any minutes following his comeback from injury.

Juan Cuadrado came close to opening the scores for the visitors inside the second minute, but he saw his drilled effort beaten away by Luca Anania.

Josip Ilicic then threatened for the visitors with a curling free kick that headed narrowly over the bar.

Fiorentina continued to dominate and made their pressure count by taking the lead in the 57th minute. Cuadrado was slipped into the box by Giuseppe Rossi and after seeing his initial shot saved by Anania, he made no mistake to slot home the rebound

Miguel Borja was sent off for two late bookings as Livorno’s stay in the top flight came to an end.
