GENOA, Italy (AP) Italy internationals Eder and Roberto Soriano scored second-half goals as Sampdoria beat 10-man Bologna 2-0 Monday in Serie A in a match that was postponed for a day due to bad weather.
The win moved Sampdoria level second with five other clubs, two points behind leader Inter Milan. Promoted Bologna is still looking for its first points.
The Brazilian-born Eder opened the scoring in the 75th with a shot that banged in off the post and Soriano doubled the lead four minutes later with a powerful effort from beyond the area.
Bologna substitute Luca Rizzo was sent off after picking up his second yellow shortly after the hour mark.
Bologna forward Emanuele Giaccherini, on debut after a loan from Sunderland, exited in the first half with an apparent groin injury.
