Fiorentina, Brescia share Serie A spoils

By AAP Newswire

Fiorentina have extended their unbeaten run to six matches in all competitions with a goalless draw at Brescia in Italy's Serie A.

La Viola had first-half attempts from Gaetano Castrovilli and Pol Lirola, while Mario Balotelli came on at halftime despite knee issues and headed wide with one of the hosts' best chances.

Defender German Pezzella was unable to capitalise on one of Fiorentina's few goal scoring opportunities.

Brescia had an effort disallowed by the video assistant referee due to a handball.

Fiorentina are ninth on 12 points, just one point behind sixth-placed Roma and a European berth.

Brescia have seven points but have one game in hand against fellow strugglers Sassuolo.
