Malta women player Haley Bugeja converted from the penalty spot to score her eighth goal of her debut Serie A campaign as Sassuolo outclassed Florentia San Gimignano 5-1.
The former Mġarr United player was deployed into the game immediately in the second-half as Sassuolo were trailing by one goal to nil after the opening 45 minutes.
Sassuolo managed to score three times before Bugeja won a penalty of which she took charge to extend her team’s lead.
This was Bugeja’s second straight goal after last week she was on the scoresheet in 2-0 victory over San Marino.
The Neroverde remain third in the Serie A standings after 17 outings having collected 40 points so far.
After the women’s international break between April 5 and 13, Bugeja’s Sassuolo will host Serie A champions Juventus in a high-profile clash.
