Sampdoria were stunned at home by a determined Palermo side, who gained three crucial points in their fight against relegation from Serie A.
Sampdoria lost at home to an impressive Palermo side, who appear determined to beat the drop in Serie A.
The home side were pinned back for much of the match, and fell behind when right back Steve Von Bergen fired in from close range after Fabrizio Miccoli crossed across goal ten minutes before half time.
The visitors weren’t able to hold on until the break though, and Gianni Munari headed in a corner in the 43rd minute.
However, in the second period, Palermo heads did not drop, and they pushed on hard for victory.
A stupendous solo goal from Josep Ilicic put them into the lead, and Santiago Garcia sealed the win shortly afterwards.
