Samp Women open the season with win at Sassuolo

Sampdoria Women got the new Serie A season off to the perfect start with an impressive 2-1 victory away to Sassuolo.

The Blucerchiati had a decent first half but found themselves behind when Lana Clelland opened the scoring on 20 minutes.

The hosts almost doubled their lead after the break but Amanda Tampieri did enough to turn Giuseppina Moraca’s effort onto the bar.

That proved to be the turn of the tide as soon after Kelly Gago levelled the scores, then bagged the winner eight minutes from time.
