Juventus clinched a late winner against Genoa in their Matchday 10 clash of the Serie A 2019-20. Cristiano Ronaldo was yet again the star of the match as he scored from the spot to help the defending champions maintain the top spot in the Italian league. Leonardo Bonucci scored the opener of the match at the 36th minute but Genoa's Christian Kouame scored a belter to level the score in no time. Genoa saw two red cards between the 50th and the 60th minute.
Francesco Cassata (51') and Federico Marchetti (57') were sent off as the visitors were left two-man short against Juventus. Midfielder Adrien Rabiot was also booked in the 87th minute of the game. Ronaldo's 92nd-minute goal was disallowed as he was found off-side but he managed to find the winner in the 96th minute of the match. While talking to a leading Italian media daily, Cristiano Ronaldo said that he is very happy as it was a very difficult match against a very organized team but Juventus showed that they always fight till the end.
Ronaldo insisted that the Old Lady's motto is to never give up till the end and that the whole team is very happy with the three points as they created most of the chances and the victory was well-deserved. Maurizio Sarri's team is currently one point ahead of Inter Milan, courtesy Ronaldo's on-point penalty. Juventus have not lost their previous 13 games in all competitions as their last defeat was against Sampdoria on the Serie A 2018-19 final matchday.
