Chievo 1-1 Atalanta: Visitors denied, then rewarded by VAR


A late penalty from substitute Alejandro Gomez handed Atalanta a 1-1 draw at Chievo Verona. The Video Assistant Referee was active throughout the match, denying Josip Illicic an opening goal after an Atalanta player was judged to have been offside in the replay. Chievo took the lead on 52 minutes when Samuel Bastien smashed in a rocket shot into the bottom corner. The VAR would come to Atalanta's rescue when they were awarded an 85th minute penalty after Illicic was fouled inside the box, and Gomez made no mistake from the spot.
