Sassuolo keeping their hope of surviving in Serie A alive as this midweek they grabbed an important away win over Fiorentina.
Playing away from home didn't seem to scare off Sassuolo as they were putting on a positive display on that tie, leading to an opening goal which was scored by Domenico Berardi on 23 minutes from the spot kick.
Things got even better for the visitor when Berardi doubling his tally on 33 minutes after finishing an assist by Nicola Sansone.
The talented attacker continue to cause problems for La Viola as three minutes before half time break, he completed his hat-trick to give his team a 3-0 lead as they go into half time break.
After the break, Fiorentina tried to get back into the tie as they pulled one goal back from Gonzalo Rodriguez's spot kick on 57 minutes.
However, Sassuolo reacted well as they regained their three goals margin with a fine finish from Nicola Sansone on 65 minutes.
Fiorentina were not keen on giving up easily though as they kept on pushing forward and were able to reduce the damage by snatching two goals from Giuseppe Rossi on 72 minutes and Juan Cuadrado three minutes later.
Those efforts were not enough though to overcome Sassuolo as the away team hold down their slender lead until the final whistle was blown.
