This is the best ever Sassuolo: now we can shout it out loud. 15 points in the first 12 matches, 6 positive consecutive scores, 3 matches without goals conceded.
In this match with Torino Consigli has been super: one penalty saved, several decisive actions have allowed the blackgreen team to end the first half with no goals against. In the second half, like it happened with Empoli, the team changed completely the mentality: short lines, pressing on the midfielders, greater involvement of Missiroli, one of the best in the second half. The importance of Missile to link the midfield and the attack is easily explainable.
Sassuolo, however, almost has suffered possibile goals in the second time, when Torino has been able to start quickly a new action, mainly thanks to El Kaddouri. In the final 15 minutes, Di Francesco has reshuffled his cards in attack: Zaza and Sansone out, Floccari and Floro Flores inside. Lucky him, has thought Ventura, Torino’s coach, who has many problems in the attack.
When the match seemed to go for the 0-0, the blackgreen players have looked themselves in the eyes and have thought they could win the match.
One look was enough for Sime Vrsaljko, to know the exact position of Floro Flores and put a perfect cross; FF didn’t missed this chance. It’s the first goal in the season for the neapolitan striker. The hugs of the companions show how FF is important not only in the field, but also off. This is the best time for him to find the goal again. Welcome back Antonio.
