Serie A: Sassuolo Fights Back From 3-1 Down to Beat Bologna 4-3

High-flying Sassuolo scored three goals in 13 minutes to complete an extraordinary comeback from 3-1 down to win 4-3 at Bologna in Serie A on Sunday.

The victory saw Sassuolo move second in Serie A, two points below early leader AC Milan.

It was also the third successive match that Sassuolo had scored four goals. Sassuolo, Milan and Juventus are the only teams still unbeaten in Serie A.

At the other end of the table, Udinese and Torino are still looking for their first points and they host Parma and Cagliari, respectively. Also, Roma welcomes Benevento and Fiorentina visits Spezia.

In Bologna, Roberto Soriano gave the hosts an early lead but Domenico Berardi curled in an equalizer in the 18th minute.

However, Mattias Svanberg restored Bolognas lead shortly before halftime and when Riccardo Orsolinis shot was deflected in on the hour it appeared as if Sassuolo was heading for its first defeat.

But Francesco Caputo set up Filip urii in the 64th and scored the equalizer himself six minutes later.

The comeback was complete in the 77th when Bologna defender Takehiro Tomiyasu tried to prevent a ball from going through to Caputo and accidentally bundled it into the back of his own net.
