One point each for Spezia and Sassuolo in anticipation of the third day of Serie A: 2-2 and both teams go to four points. Sparkling first half that opens with Nzola raising his aim at 10 ‘. A little more than a quarter of an hour passes and Sassuolo scores 1-0 in the 27th minute thanks to a header by Frattesi on a cross from Kyriakopoulos. The black-green joy, however, lasts very little because at 30 ‘ Sticks equalized the score by finalizing a cross from Reca to the best of his left. Dionisi’s men feel the psychological backlash while the hosts are galvanized, the Ligurian efforts materialize in the recovery when the referee (called by the Var) punishes a wide elbow by Ferrari on Hristov in the area: from eleven meters Nzola reverses the result. In the second half the show does not drop and the 2-2 neroverde immediately arrives with Pinamonti, quick to take advantage of a serious misunderstanding between Dragowski and Caldara and bag empty net. Defensive disaster in Spezia with the goalkeeper missing the ball out and the young new signing of Sassuolo celebrates his first goal in the league. The rhythms remain high with a lot of dynamism, Ekdal just entered suffers two yellow cards within 13 minutes and is sent off in the 81st minute: the Swedish midfielder is naive who allows Sassuolo to organize the final assault with an extra man. At minute 88 ‘Dragowski partially redeems the blunder of 2-2 and closes on Henrique’s blow, in the recovery the Polish goalkeeper is still forgiven with a miracle on Defrel.
