Haley Bugeja grabs assist as Sassuolo hit Fiorentina for six in women’s Serie A

Haley Bugeja and her Sassuolo women’s team could not have wished for a better start to their second round commitments in the women’s Serie A after hitting six past Fiorentina, on Sunday afternoon.

Fiorentina had opened the score inside two minutes through Daniela Sabatino but Sassuolo scored six times without reply with Lana Clelland – formerly of the Viola – scoring four, including one thanks to a Bugeja assist. The other goals came through Davina Philtjens and Kamila Dubcova.

Bugeja was deployed from the start in a 3-4-3 formation alongside Sofia Cantore and Clelland upfront. She played 89 minutes before being subbed off.

It was Sassuolo’s ideal response to their heartbreaking defeat to Juventus in the Italian Super Cup, last week.

Sassuolo’s victory lifted them into second place together with Roma, on 28 points, as they continue to chase the coveted second place which would guarantee them Women’s Champions League football.

Next week, Sassuolo host Hellas Verona.
