Bogliasco (GE), 30 October 2022 – With President Kyle Krause watching on, the women’s side drew 0-0 with Sampdoria on matchday eight of Women’s Serie A, played at Campo Sportivo 3 Campanili in Bogliasco (GE) this afternoon, Sunday 30 October 2022.

Fabio Ulderici’s girls started off the better of the two sides and within three minutes had already created their first foray forward: Michela Cambiaghi crossed from the left for Marija Banusic, but opposing goalkeeper Amanda Tampieri read the situation well and came out to collect ahead of the Swedish striker. After a quarter of an hour, Erika Santoro passed to Michela Cambiaghi, who then played in Marija Banusic, but her shot from the edge of the box was too high. It was all Parma and after 22 minutes, Bianca Giulia Bardin’s header was well saved by Amanda Tampieri from Alice Benoit’s corner. Sampdoria’s first chance came on the half-hour mark: Yoreli Rincon’s corner was headed on target by Elena Pisani but Alessia Capelletti saved without problems. A minute later, after Marija Banusic’s 20-yard free-kick came back off the wall, Parma’s Alice Benoit played the ball to Arianna Acuti who moved it onto Marija Banusic, but her shot was agonisingly cleared off the line by Elena Pisani, saving the Blucerchiate from going behind. On the 38th-minute mark, Elena Pisani was booked for a foul on Michela Cambiaghi. On the stroke of half-time, Capitan Capelletti palmed away Elena Pisani’s header, from Yoreli Rincon’s free-kick on the right. After a minute of stoppage-time, referee Gabriele Restaldo blew the whistle to end the half 0-0.

Samp Head Coach Antonio Cincotta made a change at half-time introducing Kelly Gago (who Parma Head Fabio Ulderici had highlighted in his press conference as one of the dangers for his side) for Sabah Seghir. And it was the French forward who went on a run down the left and launched a shot that Alessia Capelletti wonderfully turned round for a corner. From the resulting corner, Sampdoria legend Yoreli Rincon’s shot was deflected just wide of the left-hand post. After six minutes of the restart, it was Gago again freeing Elisabetta Oliviero away, but she fired over from a good position. Eleven minutes into the second half, and after one-way Sampdoria pressure, Parma finally made themselves heard but Arianna Acuti’s attempt was off target. A few minutes later and Sampdoria were down to ten players: referee for the game Gabriele Restaldo showed a direct red card to Sara Bald, guilty of elbowing Ana Jelencic whilst played had been stopped. Despite the numerical disadvantage, it was the Ligurian side who continued to push forward, putting the pressure on, yet not creating any dangerous chances or worrying moments for the visitors; the only real opportunity fell to Kelly Gago after 87 minutes, who cheekily attempted dinking over an onrushing Alessia Capelletti. Despite seven long minutes of injury-time, no other real action of note came about and the game ended in a goalless draw, for the first time for both sides, and which stops their respective losing streaks – four games for Sampdoria and five for Parma.
