CAGLIARI, Italy (AP) - Alberto Cerri came off the bench to score a stoppage-time winner as Cagliari fought back from two goals down to beat Sampdoria 4-3 in an extraordinary Serie A match on Monday.

Cerri headed in the winner in the sixth minute of injury time to spark wild celebrations among the home team and fans as Cagliari moved back into fourth spot in the Italian standings.

Cerri had replaced Giovanni Simeone only three minutes earlier.

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