OverviewThis fixture was first played in the 2013/14 season, after Sassuolo had earned promotion to Serie A. There was nothing to separate the two clubs in that campaign, with both matches finishing as draws. That set the tone for this rivalry, as the head-to-head has remained close ever since.
Fans of both clubs will be aware of the name Massimiliano Allegri. The Italian managed the Neroverdi in the 2007/08 season, when he guided them to the Serie C1/A league title and a first ever promotion to Serie B. He then left to join Cagliari, where he took charge of 74 games and won the Panchina d'Oro in 2009.
