The Sampdoria club played in this stylish Kappa jersey in the transition season from the 80s to the 90s. During this period, Kappa provided Sampdoria with sleek jerseys for three years. The highlight of this period was winning the Cup Winners' Cup. After Sampdoria defeated Monaco in the semi-final, Anderlecht was defeated in the final. In the extension it was top striker Gianluca Vialli who scored twice in 3 minutes and gave Sampdoria the title.
