UC 2nd Qulaifying Round, First Leg: Hajduk Split 0-1 Sampdoria
Sampdoria left Croatia with a 1-0 win after their goal led a charmed life early on in their UEFA Cup second qualifying round first leg at Hajduk Split.
Deflected winnerArgentinian Hugo Campagnaro deflected Sergio Volpi's free-kick into the Hajduk net with his heel after 42 minutes to give the Genoa side the only goal of the game just two minutes after coming on as a substitute for the injured Pietro Accardi. However, Hajduk were left to rue their luck - and their finishing - after creating a number of presentable chances.
The visitors seemed content to settle for a 1-0 win and did not push too hard for a second goal but nearly got one anyway as substitute Vicenzo Montella, on loan from Roma, drew a decent save late on. Nonetheless Samp are in a strong position for the home return in a fortnight.
