Sassuolo dumped out of Italian Cup by Modena

Sassuolo were knocked out of the Italian Cup on Monday after falling to a 3-2 second round defeat at local rivals Modena.

Nicola Mosti scored once in each half in a deserved victory for Serie B side Modena, who took the lead in the 11th minute thanks to Diego Falcinelli's deflected strike from the edge of the area.

Domenico Berardi netted for Sassuolo from the penalty spot in the second minute of first half stoppage time.

Although Kaan Ayhan pulled another one back with three minutes remaining Sassuolo were unable to find the leveller which would have taken the match into extra-time and became the fifth Serie A team to exit the cup.

Bologna and Cremonese made sure the top flight did not lose any further teams thanks to respective late wins over Cosenza and Ternana, 1-0 and 3-2.

Genoa won Monday's other early match, 3-2 against fellow second-tier outfit Benevento.
