Castrovilli showed what he was made of against Juventus

Fiorentina took a valuable first point of the Commisso era, drawing 0-0 against Juventus thanks to the intensity and courage shown by Montella’s side. One of the revelations of the match was the 22-year-old Gaetano Castrovilli who showed great courage and composure as he moved between the lines for the Viola.

A member of the side for years, he was looking to establish himself with the kind of quality performance that he gave in the big match against Juventus. With his first steps in the top flight, he gave a great account of himself on the prestigious stage of the Franchi on Saturday afternoon.

His character shone through in how he played as he performed remarkably considering the occasion. It was no coincidence that Fiorentina decided to extend his contract to keep the young player for Puglia in Tuscany.
