Genoa vs. Juventus - Football Match Report

Genoa vs. Juventus - Football Match Report

Earlier, reported that Massimiliano Allegri believes UEFA will not ban Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of next month's UCL quarter-final clash against Ajax for "cojones" goal celebration, following Juventus' 3-0 win over Atletico Madrid.

It was the first league defeat for Allegri's side since April 2018 against Napoli, and first away since losing at Sampdoria in November 2017.

But with Portuguese superstar Ronaldo rested after his hat-trick heroics in Europe, Max Allegri's side were surprisingly condemned to an almighty upset - masterminded by a Juve old boy.

The disallowed goal scared Genoa into action and they took the lead in the 72nd minute when Goran Pandev played a square ball for Stefano Sturaro to turn home from 12-yards out, 1-0.

"Much like the Coppa Italia defeat to Atalanta, we picked the right game to lose, because it's just before the break for global duty, so we have time to unplug and rest".

Genoa made certain of the victory ten minutes later with their second goal when Cristian Kouame played Pandev through on goal and he made no mistake with just the keeper to beat, 2-0.

Warren Calls for Getting Rid of Electoral College
Under the Constitution, states have the power to determine how they award their electoral votes in national elections. The electoral process, she said, effectively disenfranchises voters in states dominated by one party.

"I am actually happy for Stefano, because if anyone had to score against us, I'm glad it was Sturaro".

Colombian worldwide Ospina had collided with Udinese striker Ignacio Pussetto minutes into the game in Naples, before losing consciousness just before half-time.

"Fortunately it's nothing serious, he's conscious, they did a CT scan that is negative, he'll remain under observation tonight", said coach Carlo Ancelotti.

The last goal Sturaro had scored was for Juventus in the Champions League, a 2-2 comeback against Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich in February 2016.

AC Milan hosts Inter Milan later in a derby match with just a point separating the two sides, which are third and fourth, respectively.

Atalanta are equal on points with Lazio after being held 1-1 by bottom club Chievo.
