Fiorentina took veteran Ribery in the summer to prepare for the new season after last seasons dangerous relegation. After the first three rounds of running-in, Ribery finally showed his power. In this round of Fiorentinas trip to Atlanta, Kiesa Jr. opened the record in the 24th minute, veteran Ribery also had a harvest. In the 65th minute of the match, Kiesa sent an assistant from the right and burst into the penalty area with Riberys head-on cushion.
Ribery, 36, 168 days old, became the oldest foreign player in Serie A history to score his first league goal.
Unfortunately, the goal did not help Fiorentina to win. Fiorentina, who led by two goals, was eventually tied by Atlanta. Fiorentina, who scored only one point, remained unbeaten in the new season. Whats worse, they had been unbeaten for 18 consecutive rounds across the season, the second worst record in the history of the Violet Lily.
Fiorentina, currently at the bottom of the championship, urgently need to get rid of their current predicament, or they will soon be equalling or breaking the longest 21-round unbeatable record in team history; if things continue to be bad, they may not be as dangerous as they were last season.
