Genoa & Sampdoria shared the points in a feisty Derby Della Lanterna encounter on Sunday evening, ending in a 1-1 draw.
The encounter, which is famed for its pre-match atmosphere was tainted with sadness following the collapse of the Ponte Morandi bridge in Genoa which took the lives of 43 people.
However, it didn’t take long for the contest to burst into life as Sampdoria took the lead with just eight minutes on the clock. Gaston Ramirez whipped a perfect cross in from the right wing, leaving Samp captain Fabio Quagliarella an easy opportunity to head in the opener from just five yards out.
Nine minutes later and Genoa found parity from the penalty spot, thanks to Krzysztof Piątek. The Polish striker who had yet to score under new boss Ivan Juric chased down a ball from a Joachim Andersen error. With Piątek eventually being tripped by Samp keeper Audero, leaving the referee little choice but to point to the penalty spot.
Piątek stepped up and confidently dispatched the penalty into the bottom left-hand corner, his tenth goal in what has been a breakout season and his first in six weeks.
Genoa was seemingly in control and came close again when Miguel Veloso saw his free-kick just dip over the bar from 30 yards out. In truth, the second half ran out of steam, as both teams settled for the point. The result leaves Sampdoria just ahead of their rivals in twelfth place whilst Genoa is a point behind in thirteenth.
