Coppa Italia: Samp Women lose to Milan in quarter-final first leg

Sampdoria Women slumped to a heavy 4-1 defeat to Milan in the first leg of their Coppa Italia quarter final on Sunday. The visitors took an early lead through Alia Guagni, who connected with a corner from the right to head in at the near post, however Samp hauled themselves level on 10 minutes when Yoreli Rincón converted from the penalty spot following a foul on Veronica Battelani.

Martina Piemonte put the away side back into the lead just after the half-hour mark with a near-post tap-in and Milan managed to build on their advantage in the second period. Samp came under heavy pressure and fell two goals behind when Lindsey Thomas scored a spot kick on 67 minutes, after Valentina Bergamaschi was brought down in the area.

In stoppage time Christy Grimshaw headed into the net from an in-swinging corner to give Doria an even greater mountain to climb when they travel to Milan for the second leg on 12 February.
