Chievo beats high-flying Sampdoria 2-1 in Serie A
MILAN (AP) -Chievo Verona coach Eugenio Corini had a dream debut in charge of the Serie A team on Saturday after a 2-1 win against high-flying Sampdoria.
A horrendous mistake by Sampdoria goalkeeper Sergio Romero gifted David Di Michele a late winner.
Cyril Thereau put Chievo ahead in first-half stoppage time, but Enzo Maresca leveled just after the hour mark with a stunning free kick.
It is Chievo's first points since its opening day victory over Bologna. Following five defeats, the club fired Domenico Di Carlo and hired Corini on Tuesday.
Sampdoria has now lost two in a row and is without a win in four matches. The team remains fifth in the standings ahead of the rest of the weekend's fixtures.
