Sampdoria's historic start

Sampdoria have started the Serie A season with three straight defeats for only the fifth time in their history.

The Blucerchiati were beaten 3-0 by Lazio, 4-1 at Sassuolo and this evening 2-0 away to Napoli.

The only other occasions in which Samp had zero points after three rounds were in 1950-51, 1970-71, 1972-73 and the most recent occurrence in the 2004-05 campaign.

It remains to be seen if the club will continue to back Coach Eusebio Di Francesco.

There were already rumours the tactician could be axed, as he did not hold a Press conference yesterday.
