RAMPANT ROMA Edin Džeko scored his first two goals of the season as Roma came from behind to beat Benevento 5-2. Benevento had won two of its opening three matches but it was still a surprise when it took an early lead through Gianluca Caprari. But Pedro leveled in the 31st and Roma took the lead four minutes later.
It was also the third successive match that Sassuolo had scored four goals. Sassuolo, Milan and Juventus are the only teams still unbeaten in Serie A. In Bologna, Roberto Soriano gave the hosts an early lead but Domenico Berardi curled in an equalizer in the 18th minute. However, Mattias Svanberg restored Bologna’s lead shortly before halftime and, when Riccardo Orsolini’s shot was deflected in on the hour, Sassuolo appeared to be heading for its first defeat.
Francesco Caputo set up Filip Djuricic to make it 3-2 after 64 minutes and six minutes later Caputo nodded in the equaliser following a poor clearance from Bologna forward Rodrigo Palacio. It was the fourth goal in as many league games for Caputo, 33, who scored on his Italy debut against Moldova earlier this month. Japan defender Takehiro Tomiyasu handed Sassuolo their third win this season after accidently turning into his own net with 20 minutes to go.
