Francelino Matuzalem's late equaliser gives Genoa a point at home to Sampdoria in the Derby della Lanterna.

Sampdoria have left bitter rivals Genoa deep in relegation trouble in Serie A despite a late equaliser from Francelino Matuzalem that left the Derby della Lanterna level at 1-1.

The tone for a fierce clash was set after 12 minutes when Matuzalem caught Nenad Krsticic with a late tackle.

Ktsticic was forced out of the match through injury, while Matuzelam picked up a yellow card for the challenge.

The visitors went ahead on 28 minutes thanks to the quick thinking of forward Eder.

His low free kick caught a jumping wall by surprise and nestled neatly into the bottom corner, with Sebastian Frey unable to read the instinctive strike in time.

A tight match was changed completely with 12 minutes left as Sampdoria defender Andrea Costa was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Genoa took full advantage to equalise just two minutes later through Matulazem, who sent a looping strike into the penalty area that evaded everyone to find the top corner.

Both sides struggled to control possession in frantic finish and ultimately had to settle for a point each.
