Monza move to eighth in Serie A with win over Sassuolo


Domenico Berardi of Sassuolo celebrates scoring a penalty with teammates during the Serie A match between US Sassuolo and AC Monza at Mapei Stadium - Citta' del Tricolore on May 19, 2023 in Reggio nell'Emilia, Italy.

A goal in stoppage-time from Matteo Pessina has given Monza a 2-1 win over Sassuolo 2-1, moving them to eighth in Serie A.

Domenico Berardi converted a penalty for Sassuolo six minutes into first-half stoppage time to give the hosts the lead, but Patrick Ciurria equalised for Monza on the hour mark.

Then Pessina stepped up in stoppage-time to disappoint the locals and lift Monza in the ladder.

Berardi’s 10th goal of the season made him the third player to reach double figures in each of the last four Serie A campaigns, alongside Ciro Immobile and Lautaro Martinez.

Sassuolo remain 13th.

A minute of silence was observed before kickoff to honour the victims of massive flooding in Emilia-Romagna – the region where Sassuolo are based.
