Chievo beats Hellas Verona 1-0 in rare derby

ROME (AP) -- Last-place Chievo Verona beat Hellas Verona 1-0 with a last-minute goal Saturday in a Serie A derby that hadn't been played in 11 years.

Left unmarked inside the area, Slovenian midfielder Dejan Lazarevic scored with a powerful shot in the second minute of added time for his first Serie A goal.

It was Chievo's first match since Eugenio Corini was rehired as coach.

The victory moved Chievo provisionally level with Sampdoria and Catania at the bottom of the table.

Promoted Hellas remained sixth.

Later, struggling AC Milan was hosting Genoa and third-place Napoli was facing Parma at the San Paolo stadium.

Two-time defending champion Juventus visits Livorno on Sunday and league-leader Roma hosts Cagliari on Monday.
