Alessio Dionisi says the 2-2 draw against Napoli leaves a bittersweet taste in Sassuolo’s mouths, although it is a ‘fair result.’
The Neroverdi recovered from two goals down, claiming a point against the Serie A leaders, but could have completed the comeback, securing a win. However, a late Gregoire Defrel goal was disallowed after a VAR check.
“I want to compliment my players, we are satisfied, but we have a bittersweet taste in our mouths,” Dionisi told DAZN.
“I think it was an even match, we stayed on the game and the draw is a fair result.
“We are reaching a good balance, we are making some errors and we will make more, but we must continue like this.”
Sassuolo had beaten Juventus and Milan away before tonight’s match. Dionisi changed three players in defence after Sunday’s victory over the Rossoneri.
“I had to because I know Napoli’s characteristics,” the coach explained, “but told the guys that they had played so well at San Siro that they could have played again tonight.”
