Sampdoria led 2-0 then 3-1 in the 70th minute before a double from Joao Pedro pulled Cagliari level.

Radja Nainggolan scored Cagliari's first goal.

Last season's top goalscorer in Serie A, Fabio Quagliarella, netted two of Sampdoria's goals - one a penalty - and Gaston Ramirez scored the visitors' second.
