Sassuolo twice came from behind to share the spoils against Udinese last time out. Matheus Henrique’s sixth-minute effort and Nehuen Perez’ own goal on the stroke of half time, helped the Watermelon Peel earn a point at Friuli. Prior to that, Alessio Dionisi’s side edged past Atalanta, thanks to Armand Lauriente’s lone goal, ten minutes into the injury time.
