Genovese derby rearranged

The Genovese derby will now take place on Tuesday after the original fixture was postponed on Saturday due to a waterlogged pitch.

Sampdoria's derby clash against Genoa has been rescheduled to Tuesday after rain led to the encounter being postponed on Saturday.

Kick-off at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris was delayed by 15 minutes before match officials deemed the pitch unplayable.

However, authorities have moved quickly to confirm a new date for the Serie A clash, with the derby now taking place at Sampdoria's home ground on Tuesday with kick-off at 18:30 local time.

The Genovese rivals are level on points in the top flight with Sampdoria winning the reverse fixture 1-0 in September.
