Sampdoria-Hellas Verona 3-1

Sampdoria beats Hellas Verona 3-1 in the 27th day of Serie A and, thanks to its first success in two and a half months, tries to put itself back on the race for salvation.

At the ‘Ferraris’, in the match scheduled for 12:30 p.m. Sunday, the man of the match is Manolo Gabbiadini: the 31-year-old native of Calcinate unlocks the score in the 26th minute, kicking the ball into the net after a back-and-forth in the box, and doubles it in the 35th minute, with a conclusion outside the box that catches Montipò by surprise.

Hellas had a great chance to reopen the match in the second half, just past the half-hour mark, but Var twice denied the joy of goal to Gaich, caught offside on both occasions. Everything was regular instead in the 89th minute, when Faraoni actually shortened the distance, but Samp closed the accounts definitively in the ninth minute of the second half, with Zanoli’s goal on the counterattack: with the 3 points won, Dejan Stankovic’s team rises to 15 points in the standings, bringing them to -9 from the fourth-last place occupied by Spezia. Verona, on the other hand, is still third last, -5 from the salvation zone.
