Italy – Serie a
Date: Sunday, 25 November 2018
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Stadio Luigi Ferraris (Janov).
Two teams from the bottom tier lock horns in this 13th round fixture of Serie A. Genoa open their gates for Sampdoria at the Luigi Stadium this Sunday. The hosts occupy the 14th place in league standings and Sampdoria is 12th.
Genoa suffered a home defeat in their last game against Napoli. The visitors were probably one of the best teams in Italy. And a 1-2 loss against them is not that much of a worrying problem for the fans. But Genoa had a genuine chance to take points off the in-form Napoli. Genoa had scored first in this exciting fixture.
But two late second-half goals from the guests, one of them an own goal by Biraschi, killed the game for Genoa.
Sampdoria was humiliated by Roma in their last matchday. The final scoreline read 4-1 in favor of the hosts. All Sampdoria could pull back was a late lone goal by Defrel in the 89th minute. El Shaarawy scored a brace for the Romans.
