Verona, Italy (SportsNetwork.com) -
Luca Toni converted a second-half penalty kick to help Hellas Verona earn a point in a 1-1 draw against 10-man Lazio on Thursday at the Stadio M.A. Bentegodi.
It was a physical affair from the outset as yellow cards were shown to both sides inside the first 30 minutes of play and it was the visiting side that struck first when Bosnia international Senad Lulic fired home his second goal of the season in the 42nd minute.
Despite taking the lead into the second half, things went south for Lazio when Luis Pedro Cavanda was shown a yellow card in the 50th minute followed by a second yellow and a sending off 18 minutes later, reducing the visiting side to 10 men.
