With Cagliari winning 2-1 in the 89th minute, Nicolás González received the ball, only inches away from the goal, coming from a free kick, and kicked it to the back of the net to draw Fiorentina level at 2-2.

In injury time, Lucas Beltrán received a tackle from Yerry Mina inside the box, and the referee awarded La Viola a penalty kick, after taking a look at the play at the VAR. Fiorentina scored the penalty to make it 3-2 in the last minute.
