Sassuolo won the local derby with Bologna 1-0 thanks to a Domenico Berardi strike.
This game won’t be played in Serie A this season, as Bologna were relegated in May, so the friendly in Sestola is their only chance to fight for local pride.
Berardi got the decisive goal, cutting in from the right to skip past Abero and smash in the right-foot angled drive.
