VERONA, Italy — Bologna scored two late goals for a 3-2 comeback win at promoted Hellas Verona on Monday to end a four-match losing streak in Serie A.

Substitute Orji Okwonkwo equalized with a header in the 74th and Godfred Donsah scored the winner with a long, powerful effort from beyond the area two minutes later.

Former Italy winger Alessio Cerci opened the scoring at Bentegodi Stadium for Verona. Less than 10 minutes later, Mattia Destro — another former Italy forward — equalized for Bologna.

Former Juventus fullback Martin Caceres put Verona ahead shortly after the half-hour mark with a rebound of his own header.

Bologna moved up to 10th while Verona remained second from the bottom after its fifth consecutive loss.
