Spezia's Serie A derby delight over Samp

Spezia have beaten Sampdoria 2-1 in a Ligurian derby to register consecutive victories for the first time in their debut Serie A season.

It was also Spezia's first home win and followed on from their defeat of Napoli last week.

M'Bala Nzola converted a 61st-minute penalty for the winners after a header from Spezia captain Claudio Terzi put the hosts ahead in the 20th.

Antonio Candreva equalised for Samp on 24 minutes with an acrobatic volley.

Spezia moved to 14th, five points clear of the drop zone, while Samp remained 11th.
