Struggling Carpi net vital win over Sampdoria

Ten-man Carpi claimed three crucial points in their battle to beat the drop by downing Sampdoria 2-1 at the Stadio Alberto Braglia.
Lorenzo Lollo fired the Biancorossi into a 28th-minute lead after racing onto Gaetano Letizia's saved shot, but Sampdoria were level six minutes later, with Joaquin Correa firing past Vid Belec.
The hosts were gifted the opportunity to win when Fernando fouled Antonio Di Gaudio. Jerry Mbakogu did the honours and Carpi held on despite losing Riccardo Gagliolo to a late red card.
Fabrizio Castori's men are now within four points of 17th-placed Palermo, and safety, in Serie A.
