Ghanaian midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng was in action for Fiorentina as they defeated Sassuolo 2-1 in the Serie A on Wednesday evening.
The 32-year-old who was making his second start of the season lasted for 75 minutes and was replaced by Dusan Vlahovic as he helped La Viola seal a vital away victory at the Mapei Stadium.
The visitors had gone behind from a Jeremie Boga 24th minute strike, but they responded after the recess through Gaetano Castrovilli and Nikola Milenkovic.
Boateng had two shots (off-target) and hit the woodwork once. He had 35 touches on the ball, as well as 19 accurate passes (90.5%).
He also accurately played three long balls and won three of his six ground duels.
The former AC Milan ace is still without a goal since the opening 4-3 defeat to Napoli at the Artemio Franchi.
Fiorentina will host Parma at the Artemio Franchi Stadium on Sunday evening.
