Dybala solo goal, Ronaldo rocket set up Juve win


Genoa held out defiantly until halftime with goalkeeper Mattia Perin saving everything his former club could throw at him but they had no answer to Juve's individual brilliance in the second period.


Their resistance was broken five minutes after halftime when Dybala collected the ball just outside the area, slalomed past three defenders and scored with a deflected shot.


Seven minutes later, Ronaldo received Miralem Pjanic's pass just inside the Genoa half, burst forward and, as the home defence backed off, unleashed a ferocious long-range drive for his 24th league goal of the season.


Andrea Pinamonti slipped past Juan Cuadrado and scored from a narrow angle for Genoa's consolation, the first goal Juventus have conceded in five games in all competitions since the restart of the season.
