Juventus vs. Genoa - Football Match Report

Juventus vs. Genoa - Football Match Report

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his fifth goal for Juventus but Genoa rallied for a 1-1 draw in Serie A action on Saturday.

Emre Can is unlikely to face Manchester United in the Champions League on Tuesday night after Juventus revealed he "will undergo clinical tests" for a thyroid issue.

"We have to take the positives from the game and I think the way we played in the second half especially, we were fantastic at times".

Ronaldo will return to Manchester United with Juventus aiming to fire the Serie A giants to a third consecutive Champions League victory.

The Portugal captain tapped in, after Joao Cancelo's shot was blocked, having earlier hit the post with a header.

Juve seemed eager to score a second as soon as possible, but struggled to convert their possession into meaningful chances, and Wojciech Szczesny had to be alert to deny Krzysztof Piatek an equaliser from distance.

Ronaldo is set to feature at Old Trafford following his one-game ban in the European competition.

Juve are now four points clear on top of the table ahead of second-placed Napoli. Christian Kouame picked up a loose ball when Juve's defence assumed it was going out for a corner, and his cross was met by the unmarked Bessa, who headed home from six yards out.

Allegri responded by introducing Paulo Dybala for Blaise Matudi as a frantic finale beckoned with Genoa holding on for a surprising point.

Ronaldo's only outing against Mourinho's United was in the 2017 UEFA Super Cup, featuring for seven minutes as a substitute in Madrid's 2-1 win.
