It is another day of the happy moan day contest organised by Pete and other host of sponsors. It has been quite a great journey all this while and the fun never seem to end. Its another week and a new contest. Hit the Link to get yourself involved. Lego!!!
Would i say it was a game of hard luck for the Old White Ladies as they couldn't optimize every single opportunity that came their way.
The early minutes of the match saw both players of Genoa and Juventus booked. C. Romero '3' and Alex Sandro '5'. This brought the feeling that the game would really be a titanic clash. With the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo for the Bianconeri, every step toward the goal looks like a childish play for the home team. The home team kept the pressure on just before a controversial penalty given to The Griffin. As Juventus fails to deal with a corner kick and Kouame has a clean shot on goal which Perin seems to equal down low. The ball rushed out the middle of the eighteen yard box and hits the arm of Cancelo. Just then, the referee had to point to the penalty spot though it looks like a harsh call, VAR had the issue reviewed. The early decision was revoked since the handball wasn't deliberate and it didn't obstruct any viable attack.
However, the first half ended in a go a less draw as both teams retire to their respective dressing rooms for briefing from the coach. The visitors came in to the second half with a goal in the 56th minutes from Paulo Dybala but the VAR ruled an offside for that one. Everything were just not going fine for the visitors and a draw would have been the leat result they'd have expected at that moment until Prandelli's second change in the contest dramatically turned the situation against Allegri's men. Sturaro who came in for Lazovic spent just two minutes on the pitch of play then scores against his parent club, with a decisive low range shot into the bottom corner. The game grew wild just before Pandev doubled their lead with his left foot strike in the 81st minute. That moment became the end of the beginning for Juventus as they return to Turin deflowered of their glorious league unbeaten streak.
Remarkably too, they failed to fire a single shot on target in a Serie A game for the first time since May last season. Their failure to find the back of the net also resulted in them breaking a 28-game run that saw them score at least one goal in every league match. It brings a sour end to a week that saw them secure passage to the quarter-finals of the Champions League after an emphatic home victory over Atletico Madrid reversed an earlier loss in Spain.
