Ukrainian midfielder "Empoli" Viktor Kovalenko scored a goal in the match of the 13th round of Serie A against "Sassuolo".

The 27-year-old Ukrainian started the match on the bench and entered the field in the 70th minute of the match with a score of 2:3 in favor of the opponent.

In the 86th minute, Kovalenko successfully finished off and sent the ball into the Sassuolo net with a one-touch shot.

It should be noted that Victor scored in the second match of Serie A in a row. In the last round, Kovalenko's handsome goal brought Empoli a sensational victory over Napoli.

Unfortunately, this time the goal scored by the Ukrainian footballer did not help the Blues to cling to the points. In injury time, Domenico Berardi snatched a 3-4 victory for the Black-Greens.
