MILAN - Lazio scored a stoppage-time penalty to rescue a 3-3 draw at home to Hellas Verona in Serie A on Monday and the clubs saw their Europa League hopes diminish.

The clubs are level on points, a point behind Parma and AC Milan, and two behind Torino, which occupies the last European spot.

Later, Juventus looked to celebrate against Atalanta after Roma's defeat on Sunday handed it a third successive league title.

Substitute Romulo thought he scored the winner for Verona seven minutes from time as he was left unmarked to tap home Emil Hallfredsson's cross with Lazio goalkeeper Etrit Berisha stranded.

But Lazio was awarded a penalty when Michelangelo Albertazzi clipped Miroslav Klose's heels.

Albertazzi was sent off, joining Lazio's Senad Lulic, who was shown a straight red card minutes earlier for an awful challenge on Juan Manuel Iturbe.

Stefano Mauri's penalty was saved by Rafael, but the Lazio captain fired the rebound into an empty net.

Verona twice fought back, with equalizers from Marquinho and Iturbe after goals from teenage forward Keita Balde and Lulic saw Lazio go in front twice.
