Sassuolo coach Alessio Dionisi saw a ‘deserved’ comeback victory against Venezia and hopes they can take this momentum towards Juventus.
David Okereke had opened the scoring for the Lagunari, but Domenico Berardi equalised, then a Thomas Henry own goal and Davide Frattesi counter-attack completed the turnaround.
“We had started quite well, but we didn’t end the half badly either,” Dionisi told DAZN.
“There was a sense of consistency and we are pleased with that. The result was deserved. I am pleased we’ve scored for five consecutive matches, but that is a consequence of the general attitude.”
Giacomo Raspadori and Filip Djuricic were used in support of Gianluca Scamacca, even though Djuricic limped off in the first half with a muscular problem.
“The objective is to have the players in the right positions to give their best. We already went from a 4-3-3 to the 4-2-3-1 in Genoa, so it depends on our availability as well as the characteristics of our opponents.
“Venezia were dangerous on the counter-attack and we could’ve done better to limit them in those situations.”
Sassuolo are up against Juventus next week and Dionisi hopes to build some momentum.
“After this performance and result, we’ll have more energy to face Juve. It is always motivational to take them on.”
