Cristiano Ronaldo scored his fifth goal of the season for Juventus this evening against Genoa in the 18th minute of the Serie A clash.
Juventus’ Joao Cancelo picked up a loose ball from a Juventus corner before beating a defender and charging forward, the right-back cut in on his right foot before firing off a shot which was blocked.
Cancelo’s blocked shoot seemed to confuse both the Genoa goalkeeper and the defence with the goalkeeper and a Genoa defender failing to clear the ball, leaving Ronaldo to tap the ball into the empty net after Genoa’s disastrous defensive mixup.
Genoa’s defenders will be kicking themselves after seemingly gifting a goal to Juventus.
