Kevin-Prince Boateng’s hat-trick eases Sassuolo past Wipptal

The 31-year-old’s treble handed the Black and Greens their first pre-season victory against the non-league side

Kevin-Prince Boateng scored three goals as Sassuolo thrashed Wipptal 7-0 in a friendly tie on Tuesday evening.

The midfielder who impressed last term featuring in 31 league games and scoring six times to help Eintracht Frankfurt claim a Europa League spot before his departure from the side in July, was on hand to give his new club a flying start in their build up to the 2018-19 season.

The former Schalke 04 player found the net in the 25th minutes after Stefano Sensi had put the Mapei Stadium-Citta del Tricolore’s outfit in front.

Boateng followed it up with another effort three minutes later before completing his hat-trick from the penalty spot.
