Sassuolo moved into second place in Serie A with a 3-1 comeback win over Empoli on Friday.

After Empoli’s Francesco Caputo scored just 18 seconds in, Sassuolo responded with goals from Kevin-Prince Boateng — his third in five matches — Gianmarco Ferrari and Federico Di Francesco.

Sassuolo is two points behind Juventus, which will look to extend its perfect record at Frosinone on Sunday, and one point ahead of Spal and Napoli.

Spal visits Fiorentina on Saturday and Napoli plays at Torino on Sunday.
