Carlos Tevez scored a golazo but missed a penalty in Juve’s 1-0 win over Genoa.

Juventus were missing Paul Pogba and Andrea Pirlo so coach Max Allegri switched to a 3-5-2 system, including Andrea Barzagli at the back.

Juve dominated the first half and the pressure finally paid off when Roberto Pereyra played in Carlos Tevez who fired home a great shot to leave Perin clutching at air.

Despite missing a penalty in the second half, Juve coasted to victory to earn another vital 3 points and edge ever closer to the Scudetto.

Gianluigi Buffon

Had the occasional save to make, but nothing the verteran keeper couldn’t handle easily. Mostly untested and untroubled for most of the game

6.5 / 10

Stephan Lichtsteiner

Tore up and down the right flank when he could, beaten by Bergdich on a few occasions but seemed to play better for having Barzagli next to him.

6.5 / 10

Leonardo Bonucci

A little suspect in his choice of passes, especially so close to his own goal. Improved as the game went on.

6.0 / 10

Giorgio Chiellini

One of his better recent performances, keeping Lestienne quiet and contained. Strong in the air, drew fouls from the opposition strikers and was defensively sound all game.

6.5 / 10

Andrea Barzagli

Shown in 3 games just what Juve have missed for much of the season. Made a vital interception on Roncaglia’s cross to deny a certain Genoa goal. Outstanding.

7.0 / 10

Arturo Vidal

Hard-working as always, but not his best performance. Gave the ball away on more than one occasion, less of a threat in the final third of the pitch.

6.0 / 10

Claudio Marchisio

Exceptional in midfield. Worked very hard in front of defence but also made some spectacular passes that Pirlo would have been proud of.

7.0 / 10

Simone Padoin

Very little contribution in attack but defended very well to limit Genoa’s attacks.


Roberto Pereyra

A great display, full of great runs and brilliant passing. Provided the assist for the opener and could have set Juve up for a second on the counter attack.

7.0 /10

Carlos Tevez – MOM

Scored a sublime first goal beating two defenders and the keeper in the process. Unfortunately missed his penalty and was a little quiet in the second half.

7.5 / 10

Fernando Llorente

Great holding up the ball but he had his chances to score and he failed to take any of them. A tough game for the Spaniard who can’t seem to buy a goal at the moment.

6.5 / 10



Alessandro Matri


Simone Pepe
