After a slow first half the hosts took the lead in the 56th minute when Maicon's cross was deflected into his own net by Fabrizio Cacciatore.

Three minutes later it was 2-0 when Miralem Pjanic delightfully chipped Verona goalkeeper Rafael from outside the box.

The win was sealed midway through the second half when debutant Adam Ljajic smacked into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

Three points for Rudi Garcia's men see them join Napoli and Juventus at the top of Serie A.
