Genoa 1-3 Juventus: Cristiano Ronaldo scores again as leaders win

Paulo Dybala opened the scoring after 50 minutes dancing through the box round several defenders, before curling the ball past the goalkeeper and into the bottom corner.

Since losing the Italian Cup final to Napoli in a penalty shootout, Juventus has won all three of its league matches in the restart.

The five time Ballon d'Or victor might be more a great goalscorer than scorer of great goals these days but on Tuesday night he showed what he can still do.

Ronaldo has featured in all four matches since Juventus returned to the pitch after coronavirus stoppage.

Substitute Douglas Costa then put the visitors out of sight with an equally impressive strike before Andrea Pinamonti drilled in a 76th-minute consolation for Genoa.

Second-placed Lazio, who hit back to beat Fiorentina 2-1 on Saturday, then repeated the trick with Marco Parolo's 73rd-minute victor, leaving them with 68 points from 29 games.

A handball from Immobile led to Bellotti's penalty and means the striker will miss Saturday's game against AC Milan with a suspension.

But Immobile made up for his error with an expert finish shortly after the break to lift his total to 29 goals in 29 games - on track to break Gonzalo Higuain's Serie A record of 36 goals in 2015/16.

In a 3-1 win against Genoa the former Real Madrid forward collected the ball just inside the opponents half, ran through the vast amounts of space offered to him and brillianty smashed the ball home from outside the area.

Lazio's win over Torino had seen the gap at the top of Serie A closed to one point prior to kick-off at Stade Luigi Ferraris, but Maurizio Sarri's side ultimately made light work of their hosts.
