Serie A: Gilardino brace sinks ten man Reggina

ROME, Oct 18 (Reuters) - Substitute Alberto Gilardino scored two late goals as Fiorentina beat 10-man Reggina 3-0 at home on Saturday to notch up their third consecutive Serie A win.

Giampaolo Pazzini drilled home a penalty five minutes before halftime after Reggina keeper Andrea Campagnolo was given a red card for felling Mario Alberto Santana as he raced towards goal.

In-form Italy forward Gilardino, resting on the bench for most of the game ahead of Tuesday's Champions League trip to Bayern Munich, steered a diagonal shot into the far corner in the 75th minute.

He then headed past substitute keeper Christian Puggioni, who had rushed out of his goal, and ran on to slot the ball into an empty net nine minutes from time for his sixth league goal this season.

The win gives Fiorentina 13 points from seven games and a share of the Serie A lead with Lazio, Udinese and Inter Milan, while Reggina are left with just two points.

Juventus will be looking to end a four-match winless run at Napoli later on Saturday.

The rest of the Serie A programme is on Sunday, when champions Inter visit struggling AS Roma.
