Two goals from Luca Clemenza enabled the Primavera to chalk up their second league triumph in as many outings with this afternoon’s 2-1 success over Sampdoria in Liguria.
After putting Fabio Grosso’s side a goal to the good in last week’s derby win over Torino, Clemenza maintained his rich vein of form in the final third by netting early on against the Blucerchiati.
The hosts staged a brief revival at the start of the second half, getting back on level pegging through David Ivan, before Clemenza put the Bianconeri in command once more ten minutes later.
The success lifts the Primavera above Sampdoria into fourth position and places them seven points behind league leaders Fiorentina, who spurned the opportunity to extend their advantage at the top after suffering a shock home defeat to Pro Vercelli this afternoon.
Grosso’s charges will now momentarily put league matters to one side as they begin their focus on Wednesday’s Primavera Cup last 16 encounter against Livorno.
