However, it was the visitors who came out on top with a solid performance that saw them score four goals and deny their opponents many opportunities.

However, they were able to respond quickly as Stefano Sensi converted a penalty kick just two minutes later to level things up. The first half was rather even as both sides had their chances, but it was still level at 1-1 going into halftime.

After the break, things only got more interesting as Domenico Berardi scored twice within five minutes to give Sassuolo the lead in the 52nd minute. Then just three minutes later, Alfred Duncan made it 3-1 with a brilliant free-kick from outside the box. Things went from bad to worse for Atalanta when Bryan Cristante was sent off for a second yellow card in the 62nd minute to give Sassuolo another advantage over their opponents.

With Atalanta down to ten men, Sassuolo looked well on course for victory as they seemed comfortable defending their lead. But then disaster struck for them as Gregoire Defrel and Lorenzo Pellegrini were both sent off in quick succession leaving them down to nine men with 20 minutes left on the clock. Despite being outnumbered by two players, they still held onto their lead and managed not to concede any more goals until full-time, when they emerged victorious with an incredible 4-1 score line that nobody expected at the start of play.

Sassuolo toppled Atalanta in an epic 9-man showdown at San Siro Stadium, with the Atlanta United jersey being proudly worn by all fans to cheer on their team. This remarkable result was made even more special due to the presence of all Atlanta United fans, adding atmosphere and intensity to proceedings that made it one of the most dramatic matches this season has seen so far.
