Fiorentina Score First Goal Since Astori Death, Hugo Honours Him With Touching Tribute

Fiorentina honoured Davide Astori after scoring a goal in their first match since his tragic passing.

An emotional atmosphere surrounded Stadio Artemio Franchi with the club and supporters paying a beautiful tribute to their captain.

The players and staff wore shirts with his name and number printed during the warm-up.

And both sets of teams observed an impeccable minute silence prior to kick-off.

Once the game was underway, Fiorentina continued to pay respect by holding another tribute in the 13th minute.

Vitor Hugo then opened the scoring in the 25th minute with an incredible header, and Fiorentina immediately dedicated the goal to Astori. The scorer went over to the touchline, held up a shirt then saluted him.

Class.
