    Time:90'
    • Sampdoria
    • Napoli
    • 90+4' There goes the final whistle! Napoli clears the final corner and the whistle goes. A 1-0 win for Napoli. They join Juventus at the top of the table with these three points. Thanks for joining us this afternoon.
    • 90+3' Chance for Napoli to finish off the business at hand as Cavani slides the ball to Campagnaro, who can only lift the ball miles over the bar. Poor, poor finish.
    • 90+1' Maggio departs the action to be replaced by Mesto for the visitors.
    • 89' We are into four minutes of time added on in Genoa.
    • 88' All much ado about nothing as Eder drives the free-kick straight into the wall.
    • 87' Referee is going get his book out and cards Insigne for failing to get back the required 10 yards for this free-kick.
    • 86' Cannavaro slams into Eder with a silly late challenge. 25 yards from goal. Free-kick chance for Sampdoria. Will look to make this count.
    • 85' Cavani with a late nudge on Costa competing for the ball. Sampdoria with a free-kick deep in their own half.
    • 84' Can Sampdoria find the goal that will rescue an unlikely point? On comes Poulsen for Berardi.
    • 83' Dzemaili arrives to take over from Hamsik. Sampdoria will be content to see the back of him.
    • 82' Edinson Cavani has scored in eight of his last 11 Serie A appearances. Could be the goal that takes them top of the Serie A table this evening.
    • 81' Emmanuel Icardi replaces Roberto Soriano for Sampdoria.
    • 80' Cavani swings the free-kick over the wall, but too near Romero in the Sampdoria goal after Cavani had been brought down by Costa.
    • 79' Hamsik is a real threat to the home side especially with Sampdoria a man down in these closing moments.
    • 78' Brilliant turn by Insigne, but he clatters the shot inches wide from just outside the box. Super little turn and shot, but no finish.
    • 77' Obiang swings the ball out wide. Silvestri throws the ball into the danger area, but Soriano is on hand to head away. Sampdoria throwing caution to the wind.
    • 76' Estigarribia nudged off the ball late by Behrami, who will have to watch his step having already been booked.
    • 75' Over 54 percent of possession in favour of Napoli. Sampdoria not out of this game as long as it remains just the one goal.
    • 74' Insigne powers a shot at goal from 25 yards out, but Romero is on hand to make the stop between the sticks.
    • 73' Napoli set to join Juventus at the top of Serie A with this win.
    • 72' Obiang smashes a ball just over the bar from 30 yards out. Not a bad attempt.
    • 71' Sampdoria make a change to try to sort out their defence with Munari departing the scene to be replaced by De Silvestri.
    • 70' Some gorgeous movement in the build-up to that goal by Hamsik. And Cavani applied the finish it deserved. Long way back now for Samp with only 10 men.
    • 69' GOAL! Cavani plants the penalty right into the side of the net. No chance for Romero, who dived left and guessed right, but would have needed another bloke standing on the post to keep that out. A 1-0 lead for Napoli.
    • 68' PENALTY TO NAPOLI! Gastaldello clips Hamsik in the box. And is going to be sent off with a second yellow card produced.
    • 67' Inler drives the ball miles over the bar from over 30 yards out. That shot always rising over the bar.
    • 66' Pandev's number is up as he departs to be replaced by Insigne for the visiting side. A quiet sort of day for him.
    • 65' Inler slips the ball into the path of Hamsik, whose shot is charged down by an opposing player or three. Going to be a change here.
    • 64' Behrami deemed to be guility of a handling offence that is brought to the referee's attention by the protesting Munari.
    • 63' Soriano found guilty of pulling the shirt of Hamsik and that is a free-kick to Napoli deep in their own half.
    • 62' Zuniga battling hard for the ball in the box. Clatters it off a blue shirt and Napoli have another corner that ends seconds later with Romero taking the ball out of the air from Gamberini's header.
    • 61' Three of the four home defenders have now been booked. Must be good odds on seeing a red card in these final 30 minutes or so.
    • 60' Maggio is brought crashing to the deck by Costa, who sees a yellow for his efforts. Maggio in a spot of bother out there.
    • 59' Hamsik has his shirt pulled by Gastaldello, who picks up the required booking for that tug on the shirt.
    • 58' Campagnaro pops up in the home box, but his header loops harmlessly over the bar.
    • 57' This match looks like it has 0-0 written all over it unless there is a bit of magic or a mistake. Defences winning the day.
    • 56' Cannavaro and De Sanctis almost make a huge mistake with Eder lurking, but they rectify that situation well.
    • 55' Berardi and Cavani raising hands to each other. Lucky the referee never spotted that off the ball otherwise both men could have walked. Berardi has already been booked.
    • 54' Lovely feet by Hamsik to dance to the edge of the home box, but he whacks a shot miles wide. Poor finish.
    • 53' Gastaldello comes up with a brilliant clearance from the delivery by Hamsik. Superb piece of defending.
    • 52' Hamsik again trying to combine with Cavani, but no real space in that Sampdoria defence as this time Rossini makes the clearance.
    • 51' Gamberini gets the header out from the delivery by Soriano. Plenty of air under the ball, but never really going to land on the head of a home shirt.
    • 50' Eder taken out of the action late by Gamberini. No messing around with that challenge. Free-kick to Sampdoria.
    • 49' Cavani with a neat ball into the path of Pandev, who just fails to pick out Cavani on the return pass.
    • 48' Napoli seeing more of the ball without doing too much with it. Hamsik attempts to go out on to deliver a cross, but is crowded out.
    • 47' Berardi with a huge miskick trying to throw the ball into the box. Gamberini deals with the cross seconds later as he headers clear.
    • 46' We are off and running in the second period of this contest. Sampdoria get the ball rolling.
    • 45+1' There goes the whistle for the break. 0-0 in Genoa between these two evenly matched sides. All to play for in the second half.
    • 44' We are into one minute of time added on.
    • 43' Real wasted chance as the move breaks down without the corner being sent into the danger area. Story of the half really. Lack of the necessary quality from either side so far.
    • 42' Inler sees a free-kick deflect behind for a corner to the visiting side. Chance to apply some pressure before the break.
    • 41' Walter Mazzarri clearly unhappy with the referee's performance, and the match official responds by showing him the red card. More action on the side of the park than on it in this first period.
    • 40' Napoli manager Walter Mazzarri has been spoken to by the referee before being ordered to the stands. He walks across the park and is heading for a seat in the stand.
    • 39' Obiang clatters Inler with a tackle so late it started out last week. A certain yellow.
    • 38' Obiang's attempted cross is cut out by Cannavaro. Composed piece of defending. Defences on top then.
    • 37' Eder certainly likes a shot. Has had a few efforts, but not really testing the goalkeeper. Sampdoria back on the ball in their own half.
    • 36' Eder drags a shot wide of goal from distance. Poor free-kick. Never on target. We remain at 0-0.
    • 35' Behrami is going to be booked for a late tackle on Krsticic. Napoli players furious about that decision, but the referee waves play on.
    • 34' Both benches looking a bit puzzled by the goings on. Little or nothing is happening in front of goal out there.
    • 33' Hamsik looking very dangerous when he gets time and space on the ball in this match. Sampdoria have a free-kick that comes to nothing from 35 yards out.
    • 32' A booking for Berardi after he clattered into the back of Hamsik.
    • 31' Costa throws over a hopeful ball from out wide, but easy pickings for De Sanctis, who comes off his line to grab the cross.
    • 30' Inler racing down a line for Napoli, but decent covering work by the home side. Campagnaro seemed to be pushed seconds later, but the referee awards a goalkick.
    • 29' Pandev and Hamsik trying to work a bit of magic in the middle of the park, but that is an easy enough take as Romero comes off his line to collect.
    • 28' Soriano drives the ball low and hard at the visiting goal, but De Sanctis keeps his eye on the ball to make a comfortable enough stop.
    • 27' Looks like Behrami is going to return to the action with some sort of bandaged hair net.
    • 26' Campagnaro makes a timely clearance after some bright play involving Eder. Sampdoria coming to life with a lovely neat passing movement.
    • 25' Romero gets the ball away with a fist before Cavani and Gamberini just fail to connect with the ball across goal seconds later. Napoli certainly knocking at the door.
    • 24' All very stop-start at the moment as Pandev wins a free-kick 35 yards from the home goal.
    • 23' Gastaldello nods just over the bar from the free-kick by Obiang. Decent delivery, but the header just off target.
    • 22' 11 plays 10 then at the moment in favour of Sampdoria with Behrami off the park. Was an elbow of Munari that caught Behrami in the head.
    • 21' Behrami is on the deck here and needing a spot of treatment. In fact, he is heading off clutching his head. Looks like he is bloodied there.
    • 20' Decent spell for Napoli here as Campagnaro crosses towards Pandev but the ball is headed to safety.
    • 19' Elsewhere in Serie A, Palermo and Lazio are both a goal to the good. Six matches LIVE
    • 18' Estigarribia gets a bit excitable and slides in - he's lucky to escape a booking.
    • 16' Lovely ball from Obiang, a raking diagonal pass to Estigarribia who shoots wide from 15 yards out.
    • 15' We've got full live scoring of every Serie A game - there are six matches in progress at the moment. Serie A: LIVE scoring
    • 14' A chance for Christian Maggio as Campagnaro's throw from the right bounces through to him - he lifts the ball high over the keeper but it lands on top of the net.
    • 13' Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri barks instructions from the touchline - he won't be too happy at the start his team have made.
    • 12' More great hustle from Sampdoria as Inler is caught in possession in the centre circle.
    • 11' Samp continue to move the ball nicely. Krsticic has made a really good start in midfield.
    • 10' Napoli come away on the break with Hamsik, who looks down the left flank for Pandev but his attempted through ball is cut out.
    • 8' Good closing down from the front by Roberto Soriano, the 21-year-old who is making his first start of the season.
    • 7' The pace has dropped a little after that opening flurry of activity. Samp dominating possession, Napoli largely content to drop off.
    • 5' Bright start from the home side, who have made a superb return to the top flight after winning promotion last season.
    • 4' Hamsik finds Pandev, who scuffs his shot from the edge of the box and it's an easy save for Romero.
    • 3' Powerful challenge by Inler in midfield - referee Tagliavento says the Swiss international went in too hard with his shoulder and awards a free-kick.
    • 2' Chance for Samp! A corner comes in from the left, Krsticic helps it on and Munari cannot reach the ball at the back post!
    • 1' And off we go! Napoli kick off, playing from left to right as we see it in white shirts and light blue shorts and socks. Samp are in their famous blue shirts with white shorts and socks.
    • 13:55 And earlier on Saturday, Milan's struggles continued when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Parma. Milan in Parma stalemate
    • 13:50 Time for a quick recap of last night's action - Juventus trampled Roma underfoot to go three points clear at the top. They have not lost in 45 matches. Juventus ease past Roma
    • 13:45 Samp are looking at a length injury list that has robbed them of Nicola Pozzi, Andrea Poli, Fernando Tissone and Juan Antonio - Maxi Lopez and Enzo Maresca are suspended, meaning a rare start for Roberto Soriano.
    • 13:40 This match pits two in-form, unbeaten teams. Napoli can go level on points with leaders Juve if they win today. Meanwhile Sampdoria are snapping away at their heels in third.
