Genoa-Sampdoria kick-off row

Local MPs have failed in their attempts to move the Genoa Derby, so it will be on February 2 at 11.30 GMT.

Genoa-Sampdoria had been assigned by the Lega Serie A to Sunday February 2 at 12.30 local time, 11.30 GMT.

Local politicians attempted to have the match moved, as the Marassi area – which includes the Stadio Luigi Ferraris – also has a market there on Sunday morning.

There are security fears with so many people in the area at the same time as two groups of rival fans go head-to-head.
