Joy and sorrow in one city: Sampdoria is relegated

Genoa only celebrated promotion to Serie A on Saturday. City rivals Sampdoria took the opposite route just two days later. This has been clear since Monday evening.

In the summer, videos circulated online in which Sampdoria fans mocked their arch-rivals from the city: "Next year you'll play against FC Südtirol," the supporters sang, for example, in reference to Genoa's relegation at the time. Less than a year later, things look completely different. After a disastrous season, Sampdoria is relegated four game days before the end, Genoa has managed to get promoted again and the FCS, which was previously unknown in Italian football, has completely surprisingly qualified for the playoffs in Serie B.

Either way, the FCS will be playing in the legendary Marassi Stadium in Genoa again next season. Either in Serie A with Genoa or a league below with Sampdoria. Former Inter star Dejan Stankovic's team has had a terrible season: with just three wins and a total of 17 points, the first relegation in 12 years for the former Italian champions and European Cup winners has been fixed since Monday. A 0-2 defeat at Udinese sealed the sporting downfall. City rivals Genoa, on the other hand, are currently in a celebratory mood. On Saturday we returned to Serie A (SportNews berichtete).
