The visitors then had a chance of their own when Sebastian Leto found himself unmarked in the middle from a corner, but he put his effort wide.
After a goalless first half, Sampdoria took the lead in the 54th minute when Eder headed home Lorenzo De Silvestri's cross.
They made sure of the points 13 minutes from time. Angelo Palombo picked out Gabbiadini, who then fired in a shot from long range that sailed into the top corner.
