Fiorentina have farewelled fallen captain Davide Astori in the best possible way, defeating Benevento 1-0 at the Artemio Franchi on Sunday.

Astori died suddenly last week after suffering a suspected cardiac arrest at the team's hotel ahead of their Serie A match against Udinese, which was subsequently postponed.

Vitor Hugo, the player who replaced Astori in the starting lineup, scored the only goal of the match in the 25th minute, leaping high to head in Riccardo Saponara's corner.

Fiorentina could have added a second in stoppage time at the end of the second half as Milan Badelj hammered a shot from distance off the post, and Marco Benassi somehow blazed the rebound over the bar.
