Gregoire Defrel and Fabio Quagliarella both struck in the 3-0 win.
Sabatini enthused: “Defrel has found the right environment for him to deliver his best. He overcame some physical problems he had at Roma, now plays with enthusiasm and this allows him to score great goals. Apart from the brace, he also put in a strong overall performance.
“As for Quagliarella's goal, I can't describe it, as we should all stand in silence and observe it a million times. In these situations, you tend to only glance the ball, but he really aimed it perfectly.
“Again, aside from the goal, Quagliarella was a real leader on the field. He is our champion and has to push us forward."
