Atalanta crush sorry Chievo

Atalanta crushed fellow Serie A side Chievo 3-0 in a pre-season friendly.

The Orobici had risked going behind early on, but Andrea Consigli came to the rescue by parrying Mariano Izco’s penalty.

German Denis did not make the same mistake when he was called to convert a spot-kick 14 minutes later.

Chievo crumbled after the break, as Richmond Boakye turned in a Giacomo Bonaventura assist and Rolando Bianchi’s diving header completed the rout.

Chievo: Bardi (Seculin 46); Frey (Sardo 65), Gamberini (Zukanovic 65), Cesar, Edimar; Izco (Guana 73), Mangani (Radovanovic 65), Hetemaj; Lazarevic; Meggiorini (Birsa 65), Paloschi (Maxi Lopez 65)
