Marco Benassi doubled the lead of Fiorentina just before half-hour mark, a nice curling effort. Mariusz Stepinski gave Chievo a header before half-time, and it was even worse for the visitors after the break. Benassi essentially saved a goal with his outstretched arm right on the line, and he was dismissed for the incident. Sergio Pellissier was the penalty and the team was equal.
With Fiorentina, a man in a 2-2 play, they returned to a beautiful counterattack, which was whistled by Federico Chiesa from a tight corner. Chiesa grabbed the fourth and four minutes after full-time employment and somehow found herself in a two-on-five situation when Gerson threaded the needle for support.

Edin Dzeko struck a brace and Stephen El Shaarawy added a third place. Torre comeback from Atalanta, who was shortened by a 72nd-minute equalizer from Atalanta striker Duvan Zapata.

Mattia Valoti started the comeback by bringing SPAL into the game on the 70th minute and Andrea Petagna equalized five minutes later to reach the dramatic goal. SPAL came in just four points above the drop zone, but with Bologna's win and 4-0 loss to Frosinone, they advanced to 13th place with 21 points, seven points above the last three points.
