U19s beat Cagliari in eight-goal thriller


U19s beat Cagliari in eight-goal thriller

Felice Tufano’s Primavera boys got their first home win of the season on the board at the end of an epic encounter with Cagliari which saw the teams share eight goals.

The first half saw the Sardinian visitors twice take the lead with Sampdoria restoring parity on both occasions – first through Migliardi and then Bonfanti – before Leonardo finished off a team move just before the interval to give the Blucerchiati a 3-2 lead at the midway point.

Di Stefano struck 10 minutes into the second period to make it 4-2 but Zallu then reduced the arrears for the visitors. However, Polli netted Doria’s fifth just minutes after making his entrance to finally wrap up the scoring: 5-3 to Samp.

Victory takes Tufano’s side up to seven points in the table, one behind their next opponents Torino, who they will face on 1 November.
