Serie A Afternoon Wrap

Sampdoria-Lazio (1-0)

A stoppage time goal by Lorik Cana prevented ten-man Sampdoria from removing themselves off the relegation seeing the two teams share the spoils in a 1-1 draw at the Luigi Ferraris.

It was tightly contested affair between the two teams with plenty of physical challenges coming in and it also resulted in the sending off of Nenad Krstičić in the second-half.

Chances were also squandered on either end of the field and a goalkeeping error by Federico Marchetti allowed for the home side to grab a goal through the substitute Roberto Soriano.

The German pounced on the goalkeeper’s poor clearance off the line to tap it home from a yard out.

Sampdoria looked set to seal a miraculous win, but it was Cana who snatched a point at the death with his goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

Sassuolo-Atalanta (2-0)

Ten-man Sassuolo stunned Atalanta with a 2-0 win at Citta del Tricolore Stadium to three points clear of the dreaded drop zone.

A strong second-half performance by the Neraverdi proved too much for Atalanta as Simone Zaza cracked the deadlocked in the 64th minute of play.

The Atalanta stopper was to blame for some poor defending, seeing him push an initial shot at the feet of a Sassuolo player. He crossed it to Zaza who tapped it in from 3-yards out.

The result was then wrapped up by Domenico Berardi, in the midway point of second 45, sealing a crucial three points in their bid for survival.

Torino-Catania (4-1)

It was raining goals in Torino’s Stadio Olimpico on Sunday afternoon as they claimed an emphatic 4-1 win over Catania which saw Morocco’s Omar El Kaddouri score a brace.

Catania proved to be their own worst enemy as defensive errors saw them gift the Toro a handful of goals.

Nicola Legrottaglie was the first to make an error as his poorly controlled ball fell to the feet of Ciro Immobile. The youngster ran straight into the box and slotted a low ball past Michael Andujar after just 12 minutes.

El Kaddouri doubled the lead soon after when he tapped home another poor clearance by a Catania defender inside the box. The ball was practically passed straight to his feet!

Catania did reduce the scoreline in the second half to 2-1. Daniele Padelli was beaten by Sebastian Leto’s shot between two defenders, but that was to be their only consolation.

Emiliano Moretti’s header off a corner kick hit the post and bounced into the back of the net to extend the lead, before El Kaddouri wrapped up the victory after knocking in Padelli’s save from Immobile’s shot.

The result means they move up to 12th place and overtake Milan on the Serie A standings.

Udinese-Fiorentina (1-0)

Udinese shut down Fiorentina’s chances of closing in on third place after they claimed a 1-0 victory in front of their home fans at the Stadio Friuli on Sunday afternoon.

Only one moment decided the encounter and that was Thomas Heurtaux’s goal on the half hour.

Captain fantastic, Antonio Di Natale, supplied a brilliant cross into the box and it whisked over the bodies in the area to meet the defender at the near post, who tapped it in with ease.

Fortunately for Fiorentina they keep their position of fifth place on the standings, while Udinese moved up to 11th place.

Still to be played:
Bologna-Inter will be played on Sunday evening at the Renato Dall’Ara at 21h45 (CAT), while Roma host Cagliari at the Stadio Olimpico on Monday evening at 21h45 (CAT).
