An Adem Ljajic hat-trick for Fiorentina in a 5-1 Serie A victory over Pescara was not enough to see them qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
Fiorentina thrashed Pescara in Serie A but it was not enough to reach the UEFA Champions League next season.
Throughout this match, Adem Ljajic was in incredible form.
The Serbian star scored a hat-trick in a clinical performance by I Viola, who only had 12 shots to their opponents’ 22 in the game but still emerged comfortable winners.
Reported Arsenal transfer target Stevan Jovetic and Matias Fernandez scored the other goals, with Mattia Vittiglio’s strike proving mere consolation, and Giuseppe Rossi’s substitute appearance to play his first football since late 2011 proved a morale boost.
However, AC Milan’s late rally against Siena meant Fiorentina’s three points were not enough to gain them entry into the top tier of European competition next season.
