Berardi overhead inspires in-form Sassuolo to Sampdoria win

An overhead kick from Domenico Berardi secured a 1-0 win for Sassuolo against Sampdoria on Saturday that moved the Neroverdi within three points of seventh-placed AS Roma.

Jakub Jankto hit the post for Sampdoria and Sassuolo winger Hamed Traore had a neat finish disallowed for offside in the first half, before Italy international Berardi's inventive close-range finish put Sassuolo ahead on the 69th minute.

Roberto De Zerbi's side have won four games in a row and are now within touching distance of Roma, who travel to relegation-battling Cagliari on Sunday.
