HT: Verona 1-1 Parma

Parma took an early lead thanks to a Juraj Kucka spot-kick, but Hellas levelled the scores thanks to an Alberto Grassi own goal. 

Hellas had lost the previous two League games, while Parma had one point from the last five games with Roberto D’Aversa in the dug-out.

Kevin Lasagna started up front to replace the injured Nikola Kalinic, while Davide Faraoni and Mattia Zaccagni were suspended for Hellas. Andreas Cornelius leaded the Ducali’s front line.

The visitors had a good chance at the start of the game, but Matteo Lovato cleared the area just before Cornelius could hit the ball from point-blank range.

Yann Karamoh earned a spot-kick even if referee Luca Massimi had to had a VAR check to award the penalty kick converted by Kucka.

Hellas Verona reacted immediately when Kevin Lasagna burst in from the left, serving Dimarco on the far post.

The Italian winger helped it in, but failed to celebrate against his former club.

Lega Serie A eventually decided to give the goal to Alberto Grassi who deflected Dimarco's shot.

Gervinho had another good chance, but his shot from inside the penalty area was deflected by a defender and resulted in a corner kick.

Luigi Sepe palmed a Dimarco free-kick from the edge of the box, keeping the score level in the first half.
