MODENA-SASSUOLO 3-2
After the elimination of Verona against Bari, another surprise arrives in the 32nd of the Italian Cup, with the elimination of Sassuolo. Neroverdi unrecognizable against Modena, who pass the round with merit after a dominated match and the final resistance. Canaries unleashed at the start: Azzi puts Muldur in difficulty (substituted at 45 ‘) and drives the black-green rearguard crazy, serving Cittadini who touches the goal from two steps. Sassuolo’s reaction is timid, and Modena passes on the 11th minute: Raspadori serves Falcinelli with an unfortunate back pass, the attacker flies towards the net and mocked Consiglio with the complicity of a deviation from Ayhan. The goal conceded sends the neroverdi into confusion, who risk embarking and in the half hour suffer the doubling: Azzi sows panic again on the left, jumping two opponents and hitting the post, Mosti is quick to reiterate the net and sign the 2 -0. The domination of Modena is palpable, with Diaw who sees the yellow-blue trio canceled out and then is blocked by the excellent exit of Consiglio, but in the final Sassuolo revives: a foul by Panada and a penalty converted by Berardi for the 2-1 . Dionisi upsets the team with changes: inside Maxime Lopez, Rogerio and Agustin Alvarez. The green-and-blacks start well, but then succumb to the reaction of the canaries, who after touching the goal with Diaw hit again with Mosti: Ayhan’s mistake, Gargiulo steals the ball and finds Consiglio’s rejected, but the playmaker achieves his personal brace with another tap-in. Modena controls in the final, with the energy counted, and Sassuolo revives. Alvarez and Harroui touch the net, which arrives in the final siege with four strikers: the initials Kaan Ayhan, in melee, but not enough. Neroverdi eliminated and defeated by regional rivals: Modena flies to the sixteenths, where they will face one between Cremonese and Ternana. Up for grabs, the second round against Napoli.

GENOA-BENEVENTO 3-2
Genoa smiles, providing a good impression in their first official match after relegation to Serie B: 3-2 at Benevento and qualification for the round of 32 for Grifone, who played an excellent first half. Rossoblù immediately aggressive to Marassi: Coda is dangerous after three minutes, hitting the crossbar, while at 6 ‘Paleari is good at neutralizing the attacker’s conclusion and denying him the advantage. The pressing of Genoa is constant, as well as the feeling of control of the hosts, who collect corners and chances: Portanova hits the crossbar at 21 ‘, then he sees an insidious winger being rejected by Paleari in the half hour. The goal is in the air and arrives at 35 ‘: Coda pockets for Gudmundsson, the former Az only has to reiterate on the net and he succeeds. Benevento protests for a head-to-head between Sabelli and Letizia at the beginning of the action, but neither the referee nor the Var consider it foul. Network confirmed and doubling that arrives by return of post: Coda inspires again for the Icelandic, who signs his personal brace by skipping the goalkeeper and bagging the 2-0. The reaction of Benevento arrives, surprisingly, in the large recovery: Glik’s head on an inactive ball action and a 2-1 goal. The recovery takes place at a slower pace, with Genoa in control and good at finding the three of a kind on a penalty: Coda, formerly of Lecce, transforms and crowns an excellent performance with the personal goal. The pace slows down and the Grifone seems in total control, but the rossoblù disunite in the recovery: Karic takes the opportunity to sign the 3-2 and scare Marassi. There is no time, however, for a comeback: Genoa advance to the round of 32, where they will challenge Spal. Up for grabs, the round of 16 against Roma.
