Juventus Vs Genoa Live Online Commentary
Not only did Juventus beat Barcelona, but they did so without conceding a single goal. Barca were hoping to pull off another miraculous comeback like they did against PSG, who won the first leg 4-0 only to lose 6-1. However, the Old Lady are way more solid at defence than Les Parisiens. Juventus put in a defensive masterclass to shut down Barcelona’s attacking super trio.
Now only two semi-finals matches against AS Monaco separate them from the Cardiff final. Until then, however, it’s back to Serie A duty as they welcome Genoa. Interestingly, the last time the two sides met, the Grifone shocked Juve by beating them 3-1, but lots has happened since then.
At that point in time, Genoa were still viewed as dark horses for a European spot. Now they are in the bottom half of the Serie A standings, and the only reason they aren’t in the drop zone is due to the struggles of Pescara, Palermo, and Crotone. In addition, Genoa’s form away from home is not very positive. Juventus, meanwhile, are still the only side in Serie A to lose at home turf, after Fiorentina lost shockingly to Empoli last weekend, and a straightforward three points seem to be in order for the Serie A champs as they chase a Treble this term.
As regards two sides team news ahead of this match: Juventus are widely expected to rotate their side after their UEFA Champions League midweek clash with Barca, which should lead to a few stars sitting this one out. However, Juve have the strength in-depth to compensate. As for the guests: Genoa once again have three suspended players, while goalkeeper Mattia Perin remains out.
