Italy Serie AGenoa 2-1 Juventus

Genoa 2-1 Juventus

Genoa snatches a priceless win at the death. The first half was a tight affair: Kean and Destro wasted chances for either side, but there was little.

However, the game opened up in the second half when Dybala lashed in a superb 20-yard strike.

And Juventus could have finished the game off when the attacker later hit the post.

However, Genoa stayed in it thanks to some great saves from Sirigu, and they punished the visitors late on.

First, Gudmundsson curled in a precise finish to equalise. And then, after Kean managed to miss an open goal, Genoa went up the other end and won a penalty in the 96th minute when De Sciglio clumsily tripped Yeboah.

Criscito stepped up and cooly slotted in the spot-kick to send the home fans into raptures and grab a massive victory for Genoa.

Starting lineup:

GENOA (4-2-3-1): Salvatore Sirigu; Silvan Hefti, Leo Ostigard, Mattia Bani, Demenico Criscito; Milan Badelj, Pablo Galdames; Filippo Melegoni, Nadiem Amiri, Manolo Portanova; Mattia Destro.
