Sampdoria Fut Coins moved up into fourth place in the Italian Serie A standings after they claimed a comfortable 3-1 win over ten-man Hellas Verona on Monday. Rafael Marquez was shown the red card for the hosts in the 26th minute when he hacked down Samp striker Eder as last man in the penalty area, who converted from the spot to put the visitors ahead.
Despite their reduced numbers, Verona levelled through Luca Toni’s fourth goal of the season in the 37th minute, but the hosts tired after the break, with goals from Stefano Okaka and Manolo Gabbiadini wrapping up victory for the Blucerchiati. The defeat for Hellas meant they slipped to 15th place in the overall standings, four points clear of the bottom three.
Elsewhere, Chievo climbed out of the drop zone at the expense of Cagliari as they cruised to a 2-0 win at the Stadio Sant’Elia. Two goals in the first ten minutes from Riccardo Meggiorini and Alberto Paloschi were enough to settle the contest and leave Cagliari still searching for their first win at home this season.
