Bessa scores against parent club to help Genoa beat Verona

Daniel Bessa may have helped relegate his club as he scored in Genoa’s 3-1 victory over Hellas Verona in Serie A on Monday.

The result put Verona six points from safety with four matches remaining.

Genoa is almost assured of safety as it moved 12 points clear of 18th-placed Spal, which has a better head-to-head record.

Bessa, on loan from Verona, was sent in at 1-1, and he broke the deadlock 12 minutes from time.

Fellow subsitute Goran Pandev sealed the match in stoppage time when he spotted Nicolas off his line and sent a delightful chip over the Verona goalkeeper.

Genoa got off to a perfect start when Iuri Medeiros curled in Diego Laxalt’s pass inside six minutes. Verona leveled nearly an hour later through a Romulo penalty after an Oscar Hiljemark handball.
