All the numbers and statistics from the Serie A match between Sassuolo and Salernitana, which ended with a score of 2-2. It was a game that packed everything into 52 minutes and had two different faces: Salernitana’s double advantage, and then Sassuolo’s response, materialized with the brace of Thorstvedt, the first in Serie A. The sharing of the points in the final 2-2 doesn’t serve either team very well.
Salernitana’s Filippo Inzaghi expressed regret that his players missed the chance for a 3-1 lead and added that it’s normal to be a bit afraid when playing away, especially since the Campanians haven’t won since January. Regarding Alessio Dionisi, he lamented that “those who usually score missed the goals this time.”
The data provided by Lega Calcio show that Sassuolo, called to mount a comeback, did everything to accomplish it, ultimately creating three times as many opportunities and justifying the coach’s complaints about offensive errors. A sign of certainties vitality is evident by the number of shots in the second half, 20 out of a total of 29, demonstrating that the neroverdi definitely did not settle for escaping danger and continued to play persistently to win.
While Ochoa was forced to make 7 saves, Consigli did not make any and failed to intercept the decisive shots of Ikwuemesi and Dia. Another relevant statistic is the 19 crosses made by the home team compared to 4 by the opponents, showing that Salernitana has significant technical potential as seen in their superiority in dribbling, 8 to 3.
A draw on the field and the same verdict for the two coaches, both evaluated with a 6 by La Gazzetta dello Sport. Here are the reasons:
ALESSIO DIONISI – “A shocking start and a team that seems empty, weary. The reaction is real and serious: two posts humiliate a Sassuolo that can’t win anymore.”
FILIPPO INZAGHI – “Simple things, quick and quality goals. Then? The team stops playing and creates less. But, another heavy point.”
