The match was only decided by a late Marko Juric goal.
"I liked the performance, we allowed Sassuolo very little and thoroughly deserved our victory," Juric told DAZN.
“When you hit the post twice and see goal-line clearances, there's not much you can say. We could've been a bit more determined in front of goal and next time must try to break the deadlock earlier."
Josip Brekalo was one of those who thumped the frame of the goal, but Dennis Praet limped off with a suspected hamstring injury.
“Brekalo had a great game, then Pjaca knows how to be decisive off the bench. It's a pity about Praet, but we also have Simone Verdi and Karol Linetty for that role.
“The lads are all working well and there's a good atmosphere in the team."
