REGGIO EMILIA, Italy (AP) — Silvio Berlusconi's Monza won at Sassuolo 2-1 in Serie A on Friday to move up to eighth place.

Matteo Pessina scored a stoppage-time winner after Patrick Ciurria equalized for Monza on the hour mark.

Domenico Berardi converted a penalty for Sassuolo six minutes into first-half stoppage time.

Berardi's 10th goal of the season made him the third player to reach double figures in each of the last four Serie A campaigns, alongside Ciro Immobile and Lautaro Martinez.

Sassuolo remained 13th.

A minute of silence was observed before kickoff to honor the victims of massive flooding in Emilia-Romagna — the region where Sassuolo is based.
