Dismal Milan beaten at home by promoted Sampdoria

8:21 am on 27 August 2012

Italian football giants AC Milan's season is off to a terrible start after a 1-0 home loss to promoted Sampdoria.

Andrea Costa headed the only goal for the visitors just before the hour to stun a half-empty San Siro on a hot, summer evening.

The win left Sampdoria on two points after they had a point deducted over their involvement in the Calcioscomesse match-fixing scandal.
