Sampdoria ran riot as Serie A
champions Juventus lost their both their cool and ground on leaders
Napoli in the Italian title race on Sunday suffering a 3-2 setback in
Genoa. Colombian striker Duvan Zapata, Uruguayan Lucas Torreira and Italian defender Gian Marco Ferrari all found the net in the second half as Sampdoria maintained their perfect home record in Genoa this season.

Juventus got two goals back in injury time with Gonzalo Higuain scoring from the spot and substitute Paulo Dybala grabbing a second just before the final whistle.
But it was too late as Juventus fell four points behind leaders Napoli — 2-0 winners over AC Milan on Saturday.
“This was an unexpected slap in the face that really made us lose our cool,” said Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri.
“We should have been patient, even if things weren’t going our way. It’s a long game, you have to stay calm.”
Napoli have 35 points from 13 games, with Juventus on 31 and Roma third on 30 with a game in hand, after beating Lazio in a pulsating Rome derby on Saturday.
Inter Milan can move second ahead of Juventus later Sunday when they host Atalanta.
Allegri took a risk as he rested Gianluigi Buffon and Andrea Barzagli
after Italy’s World Cup play-off defeat with Dybala starting on the
bench against a Sampdoria side who have made their home ground a
fortress this season.
Sampdoria kept
Juventus reined in in the first half with Zapata breaking the deadlock
when he headed in after 52 minutes with Torreira firing in the second on
71 minutes and Ferrari a third eight minutes later.
Juventus were awarded a penalty after Ivan Strinic fouled Douglas Costa
in the box with Higuain getting the visitors first after 91 minutes,
with Dybala added the second in the final action of the game.
Juventus
conceded just their second defeat of the season after Lazio, in a blow
for Allegri’s side as they prepare to face Barcelona in Champions League
next Wednesday.
Earlier Luca Rigoni’s first half goal got new Genoa boss Davide Ballardini off to a winning start with a 1-0 victory at Crotone.
Promoted Benevento suffered their 13th defeat in as many games, falling 2-1 to Sassuolo, as Fiorentina were held 1-1 by SPAL.
Lorenzo Insigne washed away his World Cup woes by starring in Napoli’s 2-1 victory over a struggling but spirited AC Milan on Saturday.
The 26-year-old’s goal in the 33rd minute was given thanks to referee Daniele Doveri consulting the video assistant referee.
Insigne also drew a fine save from Gianluigi Donnarumma on the stroke of half-time and laid on Dries Mertens for a simple chance that the Belgian fired right at the Milan stopper.
Substitute Piotr Zielinski sealed the three points with 17 minutes left.
Milan coach Vincenzo Montella
remains under pressure despite a strong second-half performance as his
side stay seventh on just 19 points, 11 points away from the Champions
League placings, after their sixth defeat in 13 games.
Roma beat Lazio in a pulsating Rome derby thanks to goals from Diego Perotti and Radja Nainggolan.
Ciro Immobile pulled one back from the spot with 18 minutes left after Kostas Manolas’ handball was spotted by the VAR, but Roma held out for a huge win over their local rivals.
For Perotti, his 49th-minute penalty and an assist for Nainggolan’s drilled strike was the continuation of a “rebirth” that saw him called up for Argentina for the first time in six years earlier in the month.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
