Sampdoria ended their awful run thanks to a convincing 3-1 win over Bologna. You can say that the pressure was go to the Samp boss after 3 straight defeats and no win in 7 in all competitions Sampdoria were missing Massimo Volta to plus Franco Semioli and Nicola Pozzi to injury. Bologna were missing Miguel Angel Britos and Della Rocca to suspensions plus Albin Ekdal and Gyorgy Garics were sidelined.
Sampdoria got the opening goal of the game; it was the captain with the goal after 8 minutes. He curled a free kick from the edge of the box as it went through the Bologna wall. Palombo went over 500 minutes without scoring. Just 3 minutes later Sampdoria doubled the lead as Reto Ziegler delivered a corner to the back post for Daniele Gastaldello to head home from 4 yards out. After 15 minutes it 3-0 to the hosts as Sampdoria just blew away the visitors, Massimo Maccarone got the goal as Bologna was dispossessed in the midfield and Maccarone was allowed to round Emiliano Viviano in the Bologna goal to make it 3-0. This was Maccarone 1st goal for Sampdoria. Viviano then denied Jonathan Biabiany his 1st goal for Sampdoria as he pulled a brilliant point blank range to deny the French man.

Bologna were shell shocked and in the 2nd half they came close to pulling one back when Marco Di Vaio came close as his half volley just went agonisingly wide of the near post. Bologna youngster Daniele Paponi came on off the bench and made an impact for Bologna as on the 65 minute he grabbed a consolation for the away side. The goal was a bit lucky as he took a massive deflection of Daniele Gastaldello to loop over Gianluca Curci in the Sampdoria goal.

This was the win that Sampdoria needed and up next for them is Genoa in the re-arranged derby as the game before Christmas was called off due to snow.
