Match ends, Fiorentina 3, Bologna 0.
Serie A top scorer Giuseppe Rossi netted his 13th goal of the season as Fiorentina eased to a comfortable 3-0 win against strugglers Bologna.
Vincenzo Montella's side moved into a 2-0 half-time lead as Josip Ilicic dribbled past three defenders to slot home and Borja Valero curled in.
Rossi then struck a delicately weighted lob after being found by Valero.
The result saw the Viola close on the top-three places, while beleaguered Bologna remain in the bottom two.
Fiorentina came into the match having secured top spot in their Europa League group with a midweek 2-1 win against Ukrainian side Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.
For Bologna, the loss at Stadio Artemio Franchi increases the pressure on head coach Stefano Pioli after a dismal start to the season which has featured only two league wins.
