Udinese fought back from two-down to claim a valuable draw against Fiorentina.Udinese rescued a point to keep their UEFA Champions League hopes alive, as they came from two down to record a 2-2 draw with Fiorentina.
The Viola will be kicking themselves that they let the lead slip, as they are still very much at risk of relegation back to Serie B.
Bulgarian starlet Valeri Bojinov, signed in January from Lecce, put Fiorentina ahead on 22 minutes although had to depart just two minutes later.
Despite losing their star striker Dino Zoff's team edged further ahead through Luca Ariatti on 34 minutes.
Udinese are made of stern stuff however, and showed the resilience that has served them well so far this term as they restored parity thanks to Sulley Muntari and Antonio Di Natale.
League rivals Sampdoria jumped above Internazionale into third with a 1-0 victory over struggling Brescia in a floodlight delayed game.
Ex-Lecce stopper Max Tonetto (pictured) grabbed the winner on 76 minutes as Brescia were dealt a blow to their survival prospects.
Alberto Casavin's side remain four points aloof of the survival spots, whilst Samp consolidated their surprise European spot with the useful victory that was delayed for 30 minutes due to a blackout.
