Roma-Samp clash rescheduled

The Lega Calcio have announced that the match between Roma and Sampdoria has been rescheduled for January 14, 2009.

Roma A-A SampdoriaThe Week 9 clash at the Stadio Olimpico was abandoned after just five minutes on Wednesday night because of a waterlogged pitch after a storm brought a heavy downpour in the Italian capital.

With the score still goalless, referee Paolo Tagliavento called a halt to proceedings after waiting nearly 20 minutes to see if conditions would improve.

As the rules state in Italian football, the match will now restart from the point it was halted, so the remaining 84 minutes and 9 seconds will be played on Wednesday 14 January 2009. The kick off time is yet to be announced.
