Fiorentina sweep aside Liverpool with Jovetic double

29 September 2009 08:38
Stevan Jovetic struck twice to help Fiorentina sweep aside Liverpool 2-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday and earn their first points in Group E.[LNB] The in-form Montenegro forward ran unopposed on to Cristiano Zanetti's defence-splitting pass and coolly slotted the ball home to open the scoring in the 28th minute.[LNB] He doubled the advantage nine minutes later by directing Juan Vargas's diagonal thunderbolt into the net before his side rode out some intense pressure in the second half to claim a memorable victory.[LNB] The Italians, who lost their opener 1-0 at Olympique Lyon, have three points, as do Liverpool after they beat Hungarian champions Debrecen by the same margin two weeks ago.[LNB] (Reporting by Paul Virgo, editing by Miles Evans)
