[Primavera] Samp lift youth Supercoppa

Sampdoria p2-2 AtalantaReigning league champions and Coppa Italia winners Sampdoria have seen off Atalanta to take the Supercoppa title in the curtain-raiser of the new Primavera season.

Atalanta did have the lead twice during an entertaining 90 minutes at the Stadio La Sciorba in Genoa, but Sampdoria replied both times to take the trophy on penalties.

Tobia Fusciello put the Bergamo outfit in front after just four minutes, and then a penalty on the hour mark from Asante Gullit had them 2-1 up and in control. But both goals were cancelled out by Sampdoria forward Nicola Ferrari.

Morris Donati & Nicola FerrariThe first equaliser came on the stroke of half time, and Ferrari's second, with just 24 minutes remaining on the clock, took it to extra time.

There were no further goals in the extra 30 minutes and the match went to the lottery of a penalty shoot-out.

The first seven penalties were all scored, but Andrea Lazzaro's miss gave Morris Donati the decisive kick and he duly dispatched to earn the Blucerchiati a 5-3 win and the club's first Supercoppa title.

The new Campionato Primavera season kicks of next weekend and Samp will be hoping to secure back-to-back championships this season. Fulvio Pea's side travel to Parma in the season opener while Atalanta welcome Rimini.
