Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino was left clawing at thin air as the ball trickled over the line out of his reach for a late own goal against Sassuolo.

With his side already 0-1 down in the fourth minute of stoppage time, Sorrentino makes a point-blank save and the ball bounces out to Emanuele Giaccherini.

Former Sunderland midfielder Giaccherini chests the ball back in the direction of Sorrentino, but the goalie is rooted to the spot and powerless to prevent a goal.
