Sam­p­do­ria com­plete derby dou­ble

New Straits Times - - Sport -

Sam­p­do­ria com­pleted their first dou­ble derby tri­umph over city ri­vals Genoa in 57 years on Satur­day thanks to a 1-0 win.

Luis Muriel scored the only goal of the game on 71 min­utes after break­ing away from a poor tackle from Eze­quiel Munoz to drive the ball past Eu­ge­nio La­manna in the Genoa goal.

The Colom­bian striker was booked for his ex­trav­a­gant cel­e­bra­tions but that didn’t dampen Sam­p­do­ria fans’ joy after their side had de­feated Genoa twice in the same sea­sons for the first time since 1960.

Sam­p­do­ria are up to ninth place in Serie A while Genoa are down in 15th but 14 points above the rel­e­ga­tion zone.
