Sampdoria coach Alberto Cavasin admits they're staring at relegation after defeat to Genoa.

Now Samp are two points adrift of Lecce and it looks as if the relegation dogfight will be between these sides.

"The season isn't over yet and we have to cling to hope," said Cavasin.

"We've got to win our next game and hope Lecce don't do the same, so that it all goes down to the final round.

"I've got to admit, though, Sampdoria's chances of staying in Serie A are not good."
