Chievo scored in the second half to come back from behind and earn a draw at Udinese.

The home side looked to be on course for the three points after dominating the half and taking the lead from club talisman Antonio Di Natale. It was his 200th Serie A goal.

However midfielder Ivan Radovanovic levelled the score after the interval and both had to be content with a point each.
