Sassuolo largely solved the problem of qualification after good performance in the first duel. Berardi’s goals, Politano and Defrel almost had sent the Italians in the Europa League. They continued their good form in the championship game of the weekend, imposing 1-0 on his land Palermo.
Serbs are about to suffer quite painful elimination from Europes Cups and that’s because, before double with Sassuolo, had to declare defeated in overtime game with Ludogorets in the Champions League qualifiers.
