Defending Serie A champions, Juventus had to fight hard to defeat bottom half side, Genoa 3-1 at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday.
Juventus scored the first goal early, following brilliant quick feet from Juan Cuadrado to set up Dejan Kulusevski, who finished with a brilliant left-footed curler. In the 22nd minute, Ivan Radovanović committed a howler and Federico Chiesa led a break and his shot was saved by the keeper, Cristiano Ronaldo’s rebound hit the upright and Alvaro Morata scored from the follow-up. Gianluca Scamacca pulled one back for Genoa just 4 minutes after the break from a Nicolo Rovella corner kick. In the 70th minute, Weston McKennie beat the offside flag to restore Juventus 2-goal lead.
With the title slipping away from the Old Lady, they are in the race to finish in the top 4, and with the win, they sit third on the Serie A table and reduced the point deficit with AC Milan to just 1 point and 3 points ahead of Victor Osimhen’s Napoli. Genoa, on the other hand, sit 13th on the log, level on points with 14th placed Spezia.
