Sassuolo were the victims of a giant-killing defeat to Perugia in the Coppa Italia fourth round, while Bologna were thrashed by Serie A rivals Udinese.
Perugia are in the mix for an automatic promotion place in Serie B, and they took that momentum to Mapei Stadium, stunning the hosts 2-1.
Pasquale Mazzocchi and Juventus loanee Hans Nicolussi scored inside 17 minutes for Massimo Oddo’s side, who then faced a Sassuolo onslaught.
