Rome – In the 26th round of Serie A, the football players of AS Rome surprisingly lost at home to Sassuolo 3:4 in a seven-goal shootout. The home team was weakened by the dismissal of Albanian defender Marash Kumbulla in the first half.
The goal whirlwind at the Olympic Stadium was started by visiting Lauriente in the second ten minutes and scored twice. AS reduced in the 26th minute thanks to Zalewski. The home team's hopes were dashed just before half-time by Kumbulla when he kicked Berardi, who was lying in the penalty area after a duel. The Albanian representative received a straight red card and Berardi himself converted the penalty.
Even at ten, the Romans did not want to give up and five minutes after the break Dybala reduced. However, a quarter of an hour before the end, Pinamonti gave the guests a two-goal lead, and the home team could only answer one more – Wijnaldum scored in the set-up.
AS Roma did not use the opportunity to get, at least temporarily, to third place ahead of city rivals from Lazio and remained fifth. Sassuolo won for the third time in a row and is the thirteenth.
Fiorentina with Antonín Barák in the starting line-up won 2:0 at Cremona. Mandragora and Cabral collided. After scoring the winning goal against Sivasspor on Thursday in the first round of 16 of the European Conference League, Barák played the entire game.
FC Turin also won 2:0 in Lecce after goals from Singa and Sanabria. Czech representative David Zima was absent from the nomination for the match due to a knee injury.
