Samp Women start 2022 with three points against Lazio

Sampdoria Women kicked off the new year with a home win against Lazio thanks to goals by two defenders: Giorgia Spinelli and Sabah Seghir.

The Blucerchiate got off to a perfect start when Spinelli steered home a free kick off the crossbar after just four minutes.

Fordos struck the bar for the visitors – without scoring – ten minutes before the break before Helmvall squandered a gilt-edged chance to double Samp’s lead deep into first-half stoppage time.

The second goal did come after the restart and what a goal it was, as Moroccan youngster Seghir sent a fine finish beyond the keeper’s reach for her first goal for the club.

Lazio sought a way back into the game and halved the deficit late on when Le Franc turned in after Pittaccio hit the post but a frenetic finale yielded no more goals.

Next up for Antonio Cincotta’s side is a trip to Maurizio Ganz’s Milan on Sunday 23 January.
