Juventus’ miserable start to the Serie A season continued as they lost 2-1 at Hellas Verona on Saturday, with an early double from Giovanni Simeone dropping Massimiliano Allegri’s side to ninth in the standings.

Giovanni Simeone, the eldest son of Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone, scored four in last weekend’s 4-1 win over Lazio, and he added two more goals inside 14 minutes in Veneto.
The first was a poacher’s finish from close range and the second was a sensational, dipping effort from distance to stun a static Juve defence.
Allegri rang the changes in the second half as he looked to turn things around, with one of his substitutes — American Weston McKennie – firing home 10 minutes from time.

The visitors could not find an equaliser, however, as they slipped to their second league defeat in four days to stay 13 points behind leaders Napoli having played one game more, while Verona climbed to eighth with a deserved victory.
