MILAN (AP) – With a burst of three goals in 13 minutes, the surprising Sassuolo completed a sensational comeback on Sunday to claim a 4-3 victory at Bologna in Serie A.
The victory allowed Sassuolo to climb to second place in Serie A, two points behind leader Milan.
It was also the third game in a row that Sassuolo scored four goals.
Sassuolo, Milan and Juventus remain the only undefeated teams in Serie A.
At the other end of the table, Udinese and Torino are still looking for their first points by receiving Parma and Cagliari respectively. In addition, Roma host Benevento and Fiorentina visit Spezia.
In Bologna, Roberto Soriano put the local ahead in the first teammates, but Domenico Berardi leveled at 18 minutes with a warped shot.
Mattias Svanberg restored Bologna’s lead at the end of the break and Riccardo Orsolini’s goal in the 60th minute seemed to doom Sassuolo to his first loss.
But Francesco Caputo enabled Filip Đuričić in the 64th minute and scored the tying goal six minutes later.
The comeback was completed in the 77th when Bologna defender Takehiro Tomiyasu tried to intercept a pass in the direction of Caputo and accidentally pushed him into the back of his own net.
