Result: Samp lose fourth successive game

Daniele Dessena scores the only goal of the game in Genoa as Cagliari defeat Sampdoria 1-0 away in Serie A.

Cagliari have registered an important win in their fight against relegation from Serie A with a 1-0 away defeat of Sampdoria.

The loss was the Genoa outfit's fourth in a row and saw Cagliari win their third successive match under new coach Ivo Pulga.

The hosts started the game the brighter of the two teams, with Daniele Gastaldello heading just wide.

Marcelo Estigarribia then tested Michael Agazzi with a left-footed shot, while Davide Astori narrowly failed to get a touch on Thiago Ribeiro's free kick at the other end.

However, things changed at the start of the second half, as Cagliari surged ahead.

Thiago Ribeiro whipped in a cross from the right that Daniele Dessena dived in between two Sampdoria defenders to score.

Gastaldello should have equalised for Sampdoria when he found himself with the ball in front of an open goal, but he failed to keep his header on target.

Gianni Munari thought that he had scored for Samp when he nodded in a free kick at the back post, but his effort was ruled out for an offside infringement.

Cagliari could have doubled their advantage in the final minutes of the match, but Tommaso Berni made a flying save from a long-distance shot.
