Result: German Denis double sinks Sassuolo

German Denis fires in a double for Atalanta BC as they beat Sassuolo 2-1 to ease their relegation fears.

German Denis scored twice as Atalanta BC won for the first time in nine Serie A games by claiming a 2-1 win over Sassuolo this afternoon.

Luca Cigarini came close in the fourth minute with a free kick that he curled narrowly over the crossbar.

The hosts created another decent opening moments later when Alejandro Gomez burst into the box and saw his effort saved at the near post by Andrea Consigli.

Cigarini had another good chance when he worked some room on the edge of the box and fired in a powerful strike that forced a save from the keeper.

Atalanta dominated the first half and they deservedly took the three minutes before the break, when Denis directed a spectacular overhead kick into the top corner.

Sassuolo responded well to that setback and just before the hour mark they were back on level terms, as Domenico Berardi curled a strike beyond Marco Sportiello and into the far corner.

However, just moments later Maximiliano Moralez was brought down inside the box by Matteo Brighi and Denis made no mistake with the resulting penalty to restore Atalanta's lead.

Sassuolo's hopes of equalising for the second time then suffered a blow when Simone Missiroli was sent off for picking up his second booking of the match.

With nine minutes left to play Atalanta were also reduced to 10 men as Giuseppe Biava earned a second yellow card, but his side managed to hold on and claim the win that has moved them seven points clear of the relegation zone.
