The Ivory Coast international delivered a five-star performance to help the Blacks and Greens get back on the winning track
Jeremie Boga scored and provided an assist as Sassuolo secured a 2-1 win over Genoa in Wednesday’s Serie A match.
The 24-year-old received his ninth start in the league and shined in helping the Blacks and Greens bounce back after suffering a tough loss to Atalanta in their first game of 2021 last weekend.
The Ivory Coast international played on the left wing behind Francesco Caputo, who led Sassuolo’s attack, along with Domenico Berardi and Filip Duricic.
Roberto De Zerbi’s men dominated the proceedings in the opening minutes of the match, but were unable to assert their efforts by finding the back of the net.
Then Boga broke the deadlock in the 52nd minute, firing his shot beyond goalkeeper Mattia Perin’s reach after receiving a sumptuous assist from Manuel Locatelli.
Moments after the hour mark, Eldor Shomurodov evened the procedures for the reds and blues after receiving a good assist from Paolo Ghiglione.
With seven minutes to go at full time, Boga helped his team turn the game in his favor as he set up Giacomo Raspadori to score the winning goal.
The Ivory Coast international was involved for the duration of the game in his twelfth league appearance this season.
The forward has already scored two goals and provided two assists this season, amid other dazzling displays.
The victory is Sassuolo’s eighth this season, propelling him to fourth place in the league table after accumulating 29 points from 16 games.
Boga has been with the Mapei Stadium squad since the summer of 2018, when he became permanently associated with the Premier League club Chelsea.
The 24-year-old has found the back of the net 16 times in the same number of Serie A league games since joining the Blacks and Greens.
Boga is expected to continue his excellent performances when Sassuolo faces reigning champions Juventus in his next outing on January 10.
The forward has previously appeared for France’s youth team before promising his international future in Côte d’Ivoire.
He has only made one appearance for the West African country and hopes his impressive performances at the club will allow him to return to the national team.
