Sassuolo unexpectedly lost to SPALU in the 1/8 finals of the Italian Cup. Read the match report on Football 24.
A few days ago, Sassuolo had a very difficult match against Juventus. Then the entire second half had to play in the minority. We spent a lot of energy, so Roberto De Zerbi resorted to rotation in the Italian Cup. In addition, the opponent was SPAL, playing in Serie B.
The first half was left entirely for the “non-verdi”, which, however, could not translate their advantage into the numbers on the scoreboard. And after the break, it became even more difficult. Filip Djuricic already in the 47th minute saw a red card in front of him. The Serb really fouled very roughly, but the referee traditionally needed a VAR for the final verdict.
Before Sassuolo had time to properly rebuild, the opponent had already taken advantage of the numerical advantage. It was Missiroli who was the best at understanding the turmoil in the Sassuolo penalty area and opened the scoring. After another 10 minutes, the “blue-white” increased their advantage. This time Diekman closed the serve to the far post.
The final whistle recorded a sensational defeat for Sassuolo. However, SPAL will be the only non-Serie A club to play in the quarterfinals. True, it will be extremely difficult to continue the tale, because Juventus himself will become the rival.
