Hearts hammered as Fiorentina hit five


Luka Jovic’s early header set Fiorentina on their way

Hearts were thrashed by a rampant Fiorentina to leave their Conference League progression hopes hanging in the balance.

Robbie Neilson’s side were blown away in the first half as Luka Jovic, Cristiano Biraghi, Nicolas Gonzalez and Antonin Barak all fired past Craig Gordon in Florence.

Stephen Humphrys pulled one back for the visitors inside the first two minutes of the second half, but Gonzalez restored the four-goal cushion from the penalty spot.

It means Hearts now have to win their two remaining group games against RFS and runaway group leaders Istanbul Basaksehir, and hope that Fiorentina only take a maximum of one point from their remaining fixtures.
