Chievo upset Atalanta

Atalanta fell to a second consecutive friendly defeat, as Chievo fought back to win 3-2.

This was a taste of the new Serie A season and provided plenty of entertainment for the fans.

The Orobici had a strong first half, going in front early on with Marko Livaja meeting a German Denis assist.

However, Chievo struck three times in 10 minutes with Cyril Thereau’s spot-kick, Maxwell Acosty and Bostjan Cesar strikes.

Maxi Moralez found the net late on, but it was scant consolation for Atalanta.

It’s starting to concern Coach Stefano Colantuono, as Atalanta also lost their most recent friendly 1-0 to Pergolettese.
