Next Match: at home to Catania, December 08
Sampdoria coach Sinisa Mihajlovic was pleased with his team's performance in last weekend's 1-1 draw at Inter Milan and has demanded more of the same when his side host Catania on Sunday. The outcome followed the 1-1 result against Lazio and left Samp in 19th place, one point adrift of safety. "The team needed a boost in confidence and I think I have given courage to the group," said Mihajlovic, who replaced Delio Rossi last month at the helm of Samp last month. "Against Inter we didn't play to defend but to play our game. In the end we got draw which was a deserved result. Now we must continue on this path and try to get three points on Sunday."
