Lazio were given a rude awakening at Marassi, as Sampdoria dominated with Fabio Quagliarella, Tommaso Augello and Mikkel Damsgaard goals.
It could even have been a heavier scoreline for the Aquile if not for the heroics of goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha, who made a sensational double save on Damsgaard and Keita Balde Diao.
Simone Inzaghi will need a good look at his Biancocelesti after this heavy setback.
