Fiorentina beat Benevento in first match since captain Davide Astori's death

Davide Astori's coffin leaves the church

Many were brought to tears, including Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon, as a minute's silence was held at the top-flight grounds.

Fiorentina fans paid tribute to Davide Astori on Sunday as the Viola played their first game since their club captain's untimely death at the age of 31.

Fiorentina have secured a 1-0 win over Benevento in the club's first match since the tragic passing of Davide Astori.

Sammy Watkins, Chiefs Agree To Three-year Contract
So the Rams knew Watkins would be exposed to free agency, and likely lured away with big money based on his potential. Despite playing only 13 games in 2015, Watkins pushed that number to 60 receptions for 1,047 yards and nine scores.

As a weird quirk, Hugo was wearing the No.31 shirt when he scored exactly 13 minutes after the Astori tribute - at 13:00pm on the dot - on his 13th appearance for La Viola.

Once the game had resumed, Vitor Hugo put the home side ahead with a well-directed header and promptly unveiled a shirt with Astori's picture on it after retrieving it from the home dugout.

Benevento, who sit bottom of the Serie A table, enjoyed several attempts to draw level and hit the post late on through a Massimo Coda effort.
