Genoa 3-1 Cagliari

Genoa scored three goals in the last 12 minutes to seal a 3-1 victory and deny newly-promoted Cagliari a winning start to their Serie A campaign.
Lucas Ocampos curled an early effort over the top on debut and Darko Lazovic hit the bar as the home side dominated the first half at Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
But after the break, veteran forward Marco Borriello headed the visitors in front.
Olivier Ntcham, on loan from Manchester City, equalised with a deflected 78th-minute effort and moments later Diego Laxalt put the hosts in front.
Substitute Luca Rigoni headed a late third as the Rossoblu made a winning start.
