Sampdoria thrash Brescia to boost Serie A survival bid

Sampdoria came from behind to record their biggest win of the season and move five points clear of the relegation zone with a resounding 5-1 victory over Brescia in Serie A on Sunday.

Jhon Chancellor headed the visitors in front after just 12 minutes, but Claudio Ranieri's side responded through strikes from Karol Linetty and Jakub Jankto before the break.

Fabio Quagliarella extended the home side's advantage from the penalty spot with 21 minutes remaining, before substitute Gianluca Caprari headed in a fourth and Quagliarella's injury time lob completed the rout.

Sampdoria are in 16th place with 19 points, while a disappointing display from Brescia leaves them second-bottom on 14 points.

Giuseppe Iachini earned his first win as Fiorentina coach in his second game in charge after a late German Pezzella header clinched a 1-0 win over bottom club SPAL to lift the 14th-placed hosts up to 21 points.

Alex Berenguer's early strike was enough to give Torino a 1-0 win at home to Bologna and take Walter Mazzari's side above AC Milan, Napoli and Parma into seventh place on 27 points.

In the early kick-off, Udinese recorded a third consecutive win with a 3-0 victory over Sassuolo, thanks to goals from Stefano Okaka, Ken Sema and Rodrigo De Paul.
