Sampdoria's rescheduled Serie A fixture against Fiorentina on Wednesday Sept. 19 has been put back to a 7.00 p.m. local time kick-off after complaints from fans about its original 5.00 p.m. kick-off time.
The fixture had been due to take place on the opening day of the season but was postponed following the collapse of a bridge in Genoa, the city in which Sampdoria are based, which killed 43 people.
It had been given the early kick-off time on Wednesday due to UEFA limitations on Champions...
Genoa fans remained silent on Sunday for the first 43 minutes of their club's Serie A opener -- one minute for each of the 43 victims of the Morandi Bridge collapse in the port city this month.
In the first match at the city's Luigi Ferraris stadium since the disaster, there was an impeccably observed minute's silence before kickoff.
The silence then continued, to the extent that it seemed the match was being played behind closed doors with only the shouts of the players echoing around the stadium.
