On Monday, Hellas Verona suffered an away defeat to Sassuolo at the MAPEI Stadium. Both teams arrived at the match with previous defeats in the league.

Sassuolo are now in 9th place on the table and have 15 points while Verona sit in 19th with 5 points after 11 matches.

Verona found the net first, with an early goal from Federico Ceccherini in the 2nd minute. However, their celebrations were kept brief, as Armand Lauriente equalised for Sassuolo in the 32nd minute, which brought Alessio Dionisi’s squad level at 1-1 at the half time break

Neroverdi once more applied the pressure in the second period and were rewarded, with a goal from Davide Frattesi in the 74th minute so at full time it was 2-1 to Sassuolo.

Substitutions for Sassuolo included Hamed Junior Traoré, Maxime Lopez and Emil Konradsen Ceide for Luca D’Andrea, Pedro Obiang and Armand Lauriente, respectively.
