Milan: Sassuolo won 2-0 at Hellas Verona to take the Serie A lead for at least a few hours, before AC Milan’s game in Napoli later on Sunday.

Sassuolo moved a point over Milan and Roma, who beat Parma 3-0. Napoli would move at the level of these two teams, with 17 points, if they beat Milan.

This is only Sassuolo’s eighth season in the Italian top flight and the team has never finished higher than sixth.

Verona dominated the game, hitting the woodwork four times. But Sassuolo broke the deadlock three minutes into the interval and against the run of the game.

Jérémie Boga grabbed Domenico Berardi’s cross pass and wound it in the upper corner.

Berardi entered the scoresheet himself in the 76th minute as the Verona players failed to close him before unleashing a shot that took a slight deflection to dive under the crossbar.

INTER RETURN

Two late goals helped Inter fight 2-0 to beat Torino 4-2 thanks to an inspired Romelu Lukaku.

Both sides had players excluded with the coronavirus . Torino also missed coach Marco Giampaolo due to the virus and striker Andrea Belotti retired injured during the warm-up.

His replacement, Simone Zaza, sent Torino back at the stroke of half-time and Cristian Ansaldi doubled the visitors’ lead in the 62nd from the penalty spot after Ashley Young fouled Wilfried Stephane Singo.

Inter pulled one off just two minutes later when Lukaku’s shot came off the crossbar and Alexis Sánchez managed to shoot into the rebound.

Lukaku then hit the post before turning Sánchez’s cross in the 64th.

And Inter’s comeback was complete with six minutes left when Lukaku converted a penalty after Achraf Hakimi was tripped in the box by Nicolas Nkoulou.

Inter sealed the game in the last minute when Lukaku ran to the left and rolled so Lautaro Martínez could enter.
