Bari cap fine season back in Serie A
Bari completed their excellent first season back in Serie A with a win to edge ahead of opponents Fiorentina into 10th place in the final table.

Cristian Stellini opened the scoring before half-time and, after Fiorentina's Alessandro Gamberini was sent off in injury time at the end of the game, substitute Emanuel Rivas volleyed a late second.

The win was Bari's 13th of the season - and their 11th at San Nicola - and brought up their half-century of points for the season.

Both sides were missing a defender due to suspension, with the hosts' Nicola Belmonte and Fiorentina's Per Kroldrup both absent.

With little of note riding on the match, it got off to a quiet start and Paulo's 18-yard effort 20 minutes in was the first effort of note, keeper Vlada Avramov making a diving save.

Fiorentina's Marco Marchionni saw a rising effort deflected narrowly over before a farcical scramble in the Bari box almost saw the Viola take the lead.

A series of miskicks saw the ball eventually strike defender Andrea Masiello and loop narrowly over the bar.

But a loose ball at the other end just two minutes later fell to Stellini, who beat Avramov with a clinical finish.

Leonardo Bonucci missed the chance to double the advantage when he was played in by Edgar Alvarez but could only shoot into the side netting, leaving the match 1-0 at half-time.

Avramov made a tremendous double save on the hour mark to deny Alessandro Parisi and Sergio Almiron, and the latter was only narrowly off target with another good effort from the edge of the box.

Juan Castillo then shot wide with only Avramov to beat as Bari sought to kill the game off going into the final 20 minutes.

But instead it was the visitors who battled back and had two excellent chances to salvage a point and remain in the top half of the standings.

Stevan Jovetic was first to threaten but saw his close-range effort parried by keeper Jean-Francois Gillet, with defender Bonucci clearing the loose ball to preserve Bari's advantage.

And with five minutes remaining, Gillet was again to the fore as he made an excellent save to keep out Riccardo Montolivo's effort.

The frustration began to tell on Fiorentina, and they were reduced to 10 men after Gamberini took his protests too far in the first minute of injury time. The substitute jabbed a finger into the chest of referee Angelo Martino Giancola and was given his marching orders.

And Bari took the chance to increase their opponents' misery fully five minutes beyond the end of the 90 as Pedro Kamato, only introduced from the bench in stoppage time, played in fellow replacement Rivas to volley home via an upright.
