Highlights: Sassuolo 3-1 Bologna

Francesco ‘Ciccio’ Caputo returned and his impressive brace earned Sassuolo victory over Bologna in the Emilia-Romagna Derby.

The Friday night Serie A match saw the Neroverdi take bragging rights from their more illustrious local rivals and surpass them in the standings too.

Jeremie Boga also showed his impressive pace and cool head to find the net, while Riccardo Orsolini scored with an unorthodox finish.

It was Caputo’s solo effort that stole the show at the Mapei Stadium, though.
