Hellas Verona 2-3 Bologna

Godfred Donsah's late goal in a 3-2 win at the Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi ended Bologna's four-game losing streak, but condemned Hellas Verona to a fifth Serie A defeat on the spin.
Verona, whose only previous win came against Benevento here over a month ago, took the lead through Alessio Cerci in the 12th minute, the winger rising highest to nod in a Mohamed Fares cross.
Mattia Destro scored 11 league goals for Bologna last season, but his 21st-minute equaliser was his first strike for the Rossoblu since May. Rodrigo Palacio slipped him the ball for a close-range finish.
Former Southampton defender Martin Caceres restored Verona's lead by converting his own saved shot when Antonio Mirante pushed his original headed effort clear.
The tables were turned on the Gialloblu in three second-half minutes. First, in the 74th minute, substitute Orji Okwonkwo cut in from the right to head home from a Simone Verdi assist.
With Verona reeling Donsah controlled the ball on the edge of the box before powering it past Nicolas for a dramatic winner.
