Juventus was not brilliant, but they played better and built the victory with some tranquility, taking few scares. Swedish midfielder Kulusevski opened the scoring with a beautiful shot on the left angle in the fourth minute. At 21, on the counterattack, Chiesa kicked a cross, and the ball was left for Cristiano Ronaldo, who kicked on the crossbar. On the rebound, Morata was in the right place to send the net and extend. On the break, Genoa reacted with Scamacca’s goal. He went up nicely and headed to lower the score after three minutes of the final stage. However, the visitors did no more than that and the hosts swung the net once again, in the 24th minute, with McKennie, to seal the positive result. In the move, the Brazilian Danilo gave a beautiful streak for the young American attacking midfielder to touch on the goalkeeper’s exit.
