Portuguese international made history, but Allegri’s team missed the advantage and drew (2-2) in the reception to Genoa.
Juventus have lost the first points in Serie A this season. This Saturday, at home, the Vecchia Signora, with Cristiano Ronaldo and João Cancelo starters, was not more than a tie (2-2) against Genoa, until then 12th place, which had Pedro Pereira in eleven.
Soon after 18 minutes, and after having hit, head, on the pole, Ronaldo – who else? – opened the scoring in a goal that was certainly the easiest of his career. The Portuguese international took advantage of a disagreement between the goalkeeper Radu and Piatek and, almost on top of the line, pushed to the first of the formation of Allegri.
The goal brought even more confidence to Juventus, who added up opportunities, often for CR7, who went down as the first ever player to reach 400 goals in the top five European leagues. However, the advantage of a goal remained and the Genoa used to get the tie in a caricato bid.
In the face of the passivity of the Bianconi defender, especially Benatia, Kouamé recovered the ball and crossed into the area, where Daniel Bessa emerged to score, at 67 ‘. A real ‘bucket’ of cold water to ‘chill’ Turin.
By the end, Juventus still struggled to win, but Ivan Juric’s side resisted and held on to the tie that allowed them to climb to 10th place in the Italian league. Massimiliano Allegri’s side still have the lead, now with 25 points.
