Serie A Football Results – Atalanta Earned a 2-1 Victory at Hellas Verona
The home side had much of the better play in the opening stages of this Italian football match away yesterday.
And they did edge into a deserved lead via Giovanni Simeone, the eldest son of Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone.
Giovanni netted the ball from a tight spot in the 22nd minute for his 12th league goal of the season.
Atalanta responded well, though, by denying Mario Pasalic right by the post.
And then, Atalanta pulled themselves back into the game when Aleksey Miranchuk converted a striking attempt successfully from close range. So, in the 37th minute, Miranchuk’s goal brought Atalanta level at 1-1.
After the break, too, the visitors’ performance remained in the ascendancy. And Atalanta then completed the turnaround in the 62nd minute thanks to Teun Koopmeiners’s deflected strike which became a goal.
