Sampdoria ended their month-long wait for a victory with a nervy 1-0 win over Debrecen that took them joint top of Europa League Group I.
Italy striker Giampaolo Pazzini scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot in the 18th minute, while he, Daniele Mannini and Antonio Cassano all wasted chances to kill the tie.
Samp, who had not won since the opening day of the Serie A season, almost paid the price late on when Dejan Simac went close.
But they held on to join PSV Eindhoven on four points at the summit.
On paper, Debrecen were the ideal opponents for a side looking to end a long run without victory.
The visitors were thrashed 5-0 at home by Metalist Kharkiv in their Group I opener, while they arrived in Genoa on the back of a 4-1 league defeat at Siofok.
But they had arguably had the better of a cagey opening tonight and Peter Szakaly tested Gianluca Curci from long range.
But their good work was undone when they conceded a penalty in the 17th minute.
Cassano swung in a corner and Mirsad Mijadinoski was adjudged to have fouled Pazzini, who picked up the ball himself and despatched his spot-kick low beyond Mindaugas Malinauskas.
Both sides failed from distance but Mannini might have made it 2-0 10 minutes before the break when he sent another Cassano corner over the top.
Debrecen threw on Tamas Kulcsar for Szakaly at half-time and the change almost paid off when Ondoa Yannick shot too close to Curci.
Pazzini had two chances in three minutes to grab his second goal, first heading Mannini's corner over the top and then dragging wide from 12 yards.
Cassano then sent a close-range shot straight at Malinauskas from Vladimir Koman's corner.
Simac might have levelled nine minutes from time when he headed Czvitkovics' corner over the top but Pazzini almost had the final say when he shot over.
