It's the maiden Serie A season for tiny Emilia-Romagna side Sassuolo who hail from a town with a population of just 40,000 (smaller than some Serie A stadiums). The Neroverdi, who play in black and green due to kits donated by Lancaster Rovers, were founded in 1922 but success has been a very recent phenomenon. Sassuolo reached Serie C in 2006 and were thrust into the big time by Massimiliano Allegri, who would go on to coach AC Milan. Allegri took Sassuolo up to Serie B in 2008 and then left to be replaced by Andrea Mandorlini then Stefano Pioli. Sassuolo kept coming close to promotion and finally achieved it under Eusebio De Francesco in 2013. Their mission is quite simply to stay up and extend the fairytale.
