Juventus ended their slim chance of winning the Serie A title after losing 2-1 to Genoa.

The visitors almost opened the scoring in the eighth minute, but Moise Kean’s header went over the crossbar. Paulo Dybala also had an opportunity to score, but his effort was saved by Salvatore Sirigu.

The first half ended goalless. The first half was tense, with Destro coming close to scoring but failing to find the back of the net. Juventus opened the scoring in the 48th minute when Dybala hit a shot into the bottom corner to give the visitors an important lead. 

Moreover, in the 71st minute, Dybala’s effort hit the post. In the 87th minute, the goal team were able to find the net through Gudmundsson’s curling finish.

Just when everyone was thinking this match would end up in a draw, Juventus gave away a penalty, Criscito took the penalty and scored, earning a precious three points for Genoa.
