A quick second half brace from Genoa saw them bag a 2-0 win over Juventus and inflict the Bianconeri’s first defeat in Serie A this season.
After his heroics in the Champions League on Tuesday, Cristiano Ronaldo was given the weekend off, and Juventus’ attack of Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala were unable to provide any real threat against Genoa.
The Croatian in particular was woeful and barely in the game as Juve failed to register a single shot on target. Dybala did have a goal ruled out, but it would have been harsh on a lively Genoa side should it have stood.
The Grifone earned a draw in Turin earlier in the season, which was also he first time Juventus dropped points in Serie A, and goals from Stefano Sturaro then Goran Pandev gave Genoa victory and their first season unbeaten against the Bianconeri since 2011/12.
VAR was again at the centre of a Serie A match as Genoa had a penalty chopped off, and Paulo Dybala had a goal ruled out. Both were correct decisions.
