Post denies Sassuolo curler & backheel in heavy Atalanta defeat


Sassuolo will feel hugely unlucky of being denied two spectacular goals by the woodwork in their heavy 3-0 Serie A home defeat against Atalanta. After Andrea Consigli’s error allowing Andrea Masiello to open the scoring, Matteo Politano could have equalised with a curler from the edge of the box but the post got in the way. Alessandro Matri then threatened with a backheel on a cross and was denied by the upright. Bryan Cristante and Remo Freuler then got two late goals that sent Atalanta await with a commanding, albeit misleading, 3-0 scoreline.
