Francesco Caputo had the ball in the net four times, but only one of them eventually counted in an eventful Sassuolo victory, marking Spezia’s first ever Serie A game.
It was an exciting match in Cesena, with two teams determined to attack from start to finish.
Djuricic opened the scoring with a fantastic solo effort, including a nutmeg to stroke it in from the tightest of angles.
Andrey Galabinov’s towering header was the historic first ever Spezia goal in Serie A, but the Neroverdi ultimately had too much for the newcomers.
After Manuel Locatelli hit the bar, Domenico Berardi converted a penalty and Gregoire Defrel’s volley sealed the points.
Feel for poor Ciccio Caputo, though, who had three goals ruled offside, but he did eventually get one to count with a volley into the near top corner.
