The football match between Juventus 1-0 Genoa. After Napoli overcame Atalanta by the same scoreline on Sunday, Massimiliano Allegri’s side kept pace with their table-topping rivals thanks to Douglas Costa’s early strike.
The Brazilian’s burst in behind Genoa’s defense allowed him to poke home Mandzukic’s perfectly weighted pass from close range and give the Bianconeri a deserved lead.
Genoa C.F.C. had arrived in Turin on a four-game unbeaten run in the Serie-A league under coach Davide Ballardini, the experienced coach having engineered an upturn in fortunes since being appointed for a third spell in charge of the club last November.
However, despite the tension in the stands, Juventus held firm to record their third triumph of the season over Genoa team, having also knocked them out of the Coppa Italia last December.
After a very important early goal by Brazilian star Douglas Costa, the final result of the game is Juventus 1-0 Genoa.
