Sassuolo stun Sampdoria

Sassuolo earned a surprise victory over Sampdoria, as despite Matteo Politano’s parried penalty and VAR controversy, Alessandro Matri struck late on.

The Blucerchiati were knocked out of the Coppa Italia midweek and now have just one point from the last four rounds.

The Neroverdi earned their win at Marassi, as Politano clipped the upright with a ferocious volley, then his penalty was saved by Emiliano Viviano – but Sassuolo were denied another clear spot-kick for Lucas Torreira’s handling offence.

Nonetheless, substitute Matri volleyed in at the near post on Antonino Ragusa’s cross at the last minute.
