ROME (AP) — Benevento remained the only club in Europe’s top five leagues without a point after losing at basement rival Hellas Verona 1-0 in Serie A on Monday.
Romulo scored with a long volley to conclude a counterattack in the 74th minute.
Benevento center back Luca Antei was shown a direct red card for a sliding tackle late in the first half and Verona striker Giampaolo Pazzini nearly took advantage immediately when he hit the post.
With its first win of the season, Verona moved up to 16th place with six points.
Benevento has lost all eight of its matches.
All of the top-division squads in England, France, Germany and Spain have earned at least a point.
