Simon condemned another loss to Juve.



Giovanni Simeone hit twice when Verona beat Juventus 2-1 in Serie A on Saturday to give Massimiliano Allegri’s struggling side their second loss in four days.

Atletico Madrid coach Diego’s son Simeone put Verona ahead when he converted a rebound at Stadio Bentegodi in the 11th minute.

Argentina added a quick second with a superb curling effort from 20 meters, scoring six goals in their last two starts, scoring four times against Lazio last weekend.

Paolo Debala hit a crossbar just before halftime to miss a Federico Chisa injury from the U, but the visitors had 10 minutes left when Weston McKinney took power in his second in many games. So he took the goal back.

Verona goalkeeper Lorenzo Monteiro made a great stop in the last minute to deny Paolo Debala a goal.

After recovering from a terrible start to the season with four consecutive wins, Juve have scored just one point in three games and are ninth, 13 points behind Napoli and AC Milan.

“What can I say? The words are meaningless right now. We are in a bad situation, we have to accept the fact that we are a middle table team at the moment,” Allegri told DAZN.

“We will get ourselves out of this situation. There is no point in feeling sorry for ourselves, it will not help.”

Verona has won all four home games since the appointment of former Joao assistant Igor Tudor in mid-September. The former Croatia international served as Andrea Perlo’s deputy at Turin last season.

Atlanta saved a 2-2 home draw against Lazio by scoring in extra time at the end of each half, preventing both teams from entering the top four.

Dovan Zapata scored on the last kick of the first half to cancel Pedro’s opening goal.

Then, in the fourth minute of the second half, Martin de Rowan equalized when Cerro Amobile scored, making him Lazio’s all-time leading scorer.

Atlanta finished fifth, fourth in points with Roma. Lazio finished sixth, one point behind.

Pedro gave the visitors the lead in the 18th minute when he fired a shot from close range to the rebound.

At the end of the half, Zapata shrugged Adam Marosk and fired a shot that reached Pepe Reina but could not save.

In the 74th minute, substitute Toma Besik found an immobile in the middle of the box and the striker threw the ball at diving Juan Muso.

It was the ninth goal of the season for the mobile and the 159th goal for the 31-year-old Lazio, who joined Sevilla in 2016.

He equaled him with World Cup-winning striker Silvio Piola, who played for the club from 1934-43 before ending World War II in Torino and ending his 25-year career at Juventus and Novara.
