Serie A: Three sent off as Genoa win fiery derby with Samp; Udinese down Livorno

Genoa 3 – Sampdoria 0 (Serie A, November 28, 2009) Two of the hosts’ goals came from the penalty spot as Omar Milanetto opened the scoring in the 10th minute, and Raffaele Palladino added the third in identical fashion in the 75th minute. The penalties were either side of Marco Rossi’s second-half strike which effectively secured victory for Gian Piero Gasperini’s side, despite Giuseppe Biava being shown the first red card on the stroke of half-time for a second bookable offence.

Udinese 2 – Livorno 0 (Serie A, November 28, 2009) A spectacular 30-yard free-kick from the evergreen Antonio Di Natale that ripped into the top corner saw Udinese take the lead against Livorno. The Zebrette doubled their lead through Antonio Floro Flores’ well directed header from a fine left-wing cross.
