Ghana international, Emmanuel Agyemang Badu was in action this evening when his Hellas Verona outfit lost 2-1 to AS Roma at the Stadio Olimpico in the Italian Seria A.
Towards the end of the 2019/2020 football season in Italy, the two top-flight clubs locked horns today to fight for 3 points to boost their chances of a strong finish on the standings.
On the Matchday, Emmanuel Agyeman Badu was named as a substitute for Hellas Verona and managed to earn some playing time in the second half when his team was trailing.
A penalty converted by Jordan Veretout plus an equalizer from experienced striker Edin Dzeko in the first half handed AS Roma a healthy lead to take into the break.
Two minutes into the second half, an improved Hellas Verona side halved the deficit courtesy a strike from Matteo Pessina after he was assisted by Mattia Zaccagni.
In the last 10 minutes, Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu replaced Sofyan Amrabat in a move to enforce the midfield of the visitors in their quest to at least earn a draw.
Unfortunately, they could not equalize and had to settle for a narrow defeat at the end of the 90 minutes.
This is the 9th appearance of Agyemang Badu in the Serie A for Verona this season since joining the side at the beginning of the season on a 1-year loan deal from Udinese.
