VERONA, Italy (AP) — In a match between two teams still getting players back from coronavirus outbreaks, Hellas Verona beat Bologna 2-1 in Serie A on Friday.
Nikola Kalinic headed in the winner in the 85th to finish off a counterattack.
In the first half, Gianluca Caprari equalized for Verona with a backheel flick following Riccardo Orsolini’s acrobatic opener for Bologna.
Verona was decimated by cases of COVID-19 at the start of the year and endured a surprise home defeat to last-place Salernitana. It bounced back to win 4-2 at Sassuolo last weekend with Antonín Barák bagging a hat trick.
Bologna’s match against Inter Milan this month wasn’t played when Bologna, too, was without a number of players who tested positive.
Verona moved up to ninth while Bologna remained 13th.
