The Giallorossi, for their part, have conceded the most goals out of Serie A’s top 10 sides (45) and shipped seven away to Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia.

“We were up against a side that is challenging for the Scudetto and we caused them a lot of problems. We had chances to score, so did they, but we kept a clean sheet and gave our all,” the Viola defender told Sky Sport Italia.
