Sassuolo moved a point above Verona and eight points below sixth-place Napoli
Sassuolo boosted its chances of qualifying for the Europa League by beating Hellas Verona 3-2 on Saturday to leapfrog its opponent into eighth place in Serie A.
Manuel Locatelli got Sassuolo off to the perfect start by firing the hosts in front in the fourth minute but Darko Lazovic leveled two minutes before halftime.
Filip Duricic restored Sassuolo’s lead shortly after the break. Federico Dimarco volleyed in another equalizer in the 79th but Hamed Traore scored what was to prove the winner three minutes later.
It was a tense finale and Verona coach Ivan Juric was sent off for dissent in the dying minutes.
Sassuolo moved a point above Verona and eight points below sixth-place Napoli.
Filippo Inzaghi’s Benevento was playing Fiorentina later — with the teams level on points and looking to climb further away from the drop zone — and Genoa hosted Udinese.
