Sampdoria vs Brescia preview - Cavasin calls for win

I have a say

Posted Sunday, May 01, 2011 by PA

Sampdoria coach Alberto Cavasin has called on his side to take confidence from their performance against Bari as their Serie A survival fight reaches a critical point against Brescia.

The Blucerchiati are 17th in the standings, level on 35 points with third-from-bottom Lecce with four games remaining, and still have difficult fixtures to come against Genoa, Palermo and Roma.

Cavasin's men halted a run of nine games without a win with a 1-0 triumph at Bari last weekend to keep their hopes of retaining their Serie A status alive.

Cavasin was pleased with his team's performance and expects his side to show the same determination they displayed in Bari when they host Brescia.

"We needed to get a result against Bari and with a good performance we brought home three points," said Cavasin.

"We showed great balance at both ends of the pitch.

"We must gain strength from that performance and try to get a positive result against Brescia."

Giuseppe Iachini's side have collected just four points in their last five games and the situation is becoming increasingly desperate.

The Rondinelle are 19th, five points adrift of safety.

"There is only one possible result for us and that is to win at Sampdoria," said Iachini. "We are in a difficult situation and time is running out for us to avoid the drop.

"A win on Sunday would get us back in the race to defend our Serie A status."
