A nigtmare for The Rossoneri

Sampdoria won 2-1 over AC Milan at Luigi Feraris stadium. The days of the week are as if a nigtmare for The Rossoneri. After eliminated from UEFA cup qualifying against Werder Bremen and now Milan have suffer again by Samdoria.

Sampdoria did the thing contrary than Milan. They have forgotten their elimination from Ukraine's club Metalist in UEFA cup qualifying successfully and to try to get advantage by beaten AC Milan in Serie A.

Sampdoria controlled Milan whole the first half but in the second half the Rossoneri grew constantly and showed a lot of pride at the end.
Kaka and Ronaldinho are still unavailable, therefore AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti used the same formation as They used against Cagliari last week, the Rossoneri once again count on Pirlo's geometries, Beckham's crosses, and the muscles of Flamini and Jankulovski. A numerous midfield, then, to protect the defensive line Zambrotta-Bonera-Senderos-Antonini, which had the task to block the runs of the couple Cassano-Pazzini which was absent at Kharkiv. To complete Carlo Ancelotti's formation there was the usual Alexandre Pato, behind him another stalwart, Clarence Seedorf, who went off the pitch due to an injury to his ankle during the match against Werder Bremen.

In the 33rd minute Sampdoria took the lead, Antonio Cassano who didn't miss with his header used Palombo corner kick. Abbiati and team mates protested because the ball allegedly didn't cross the goal line, but replays ensure it was a correct goal. Pazzini doubled Samp's lead in the 6th minute of the second half with a great goal fashioned by the couple Cassano-Pazzini. Cassano served a great ball to Pazzini, who dribbled past Bonera, and from a difficult position beat the blameless Abbiati. In the 35th minute super Pato reduced the distances and scored his 12th goal in Serie A (15th of the season): cross from the left by Favalli, header by the Brazilian which Castellazzi couldn't reach. Two minutes later another substitute, Emerson, gave Milan the illusion of the equaliser as he deflected a free kick by Pirlo past the goalkeeper with a header: but the linesman had already raised his flag to signal the Puma's offside position, although he might not even have touched the ball. By then it was a whole different Milan, angry and combative, with Samp suffering from the Rossoneri's pressing. That's why Mazzarri decided to cover up by inserting the young Marilungo for Cassano.

SAMPDORIA: Castellazzi, Raggi, Lucchini, Accardi, Stankevicius, Sammarco, Palombo, Franceschini, Pieri, Pazzini, Cassano.

MILAN: Abbiati, Zambrotta, Bonera, Senderos, Antonini, Beckham, Pirlo, Flamini, Jankulovski, Seedorf, Pato.
