Sampdoria kept up their impressive start to the latest Serie A campaign and maintained their perfect home record when they thumped hapless Crotone 5-0 on Saturday, with five players sharing the goals. Defender Gian Marco Ferrari began the rout by heading in from a free kick in the third minute against his former club and Fabio Quagliarella drilled home a penalty eight minutes later after Duvan Zapata was hauled back in the area. Colombian Zapata also set up the third in the 38th minute when he held off a challenge to reach the byline and provide an easy chance for Gianluca Caprari to turn the ball in at the far post.
