Gian Piero Gasperini's side had the chance to move level on points with fifth-placed Inter Milan with a win in Florence and looked good after Joakim Maehle poked the away side ahead eight minutes before the break.

But Arthur Cabral earned Fiorentina a point and extended his team's unbeaten record to 14 matches by rolling home a 56th-minute penalty following Rafael Toloi's handball.

A win would have greatly improved sixth-placed Atalanta's top-four hopes after Inter and AC Milan both dropped points at the weekend.

They are four points behind Milan, who sit fourth and could only draw 1-1 at Bologna on Saturday.

Fiorentina meanwhile are ninth and seven points behind the Europa Conference League spot currently held by Atalanta.
