(EFE) – A penalty double by Domenico Berardi, together with a goal by Frenchman Maxime Lopez, gave Sassuolo a 3-1 win against Fiorentina by Argentine Germán Pezzella, Chilean Erick Pulgar and Uruguayan Martín Cáceres, on the thirty-first day of Serie A.
And that Fiorentina, who is still involved in the fight for salvation, went to rest 1-0 ahead thanks to a goal after half an hour from Giacomo Bonaventura.
In the Tuscan table, Pezzella, Pulgar and Cáceres were the starters, while the Spanish José Callejón entered the last twenty minutes.
However, the changes made after the break by coach Roberto De Zerbi, one of the most appreciated in Italy for his technical, vertical and offensive game, were decisive for Sassuolo to shield their eighth league position.
Berardi took the field to replace Serbian Filip Djuricic and was in charge of safely transforming two penalties in the space of three minutes, between 59 and 62.
Sassuolo took the lead and definitively sentenced the clash in the 75th minute at the hand of López, with a good shot from the edge of the area.
For Fiorentina it was the second loss in a row, leaving Giuseppe Iachini’s men in 15th place, with an eight-point margin (and one more match) on relegation.
