Goal for Genoa CFC, 2-1 by Lennart Czyborra
Out of nowhere, Genoa is back in the game! After a long cross from the right, left-back Czyborra steals into the penalty area and comes completely free to the header – and he puts it into the net in the lower right corner, no chance for Buffon!
Rodrigo Bentancur (Juventus) is shown a yellow card
Goal for Juventus, 2-0 by Morata
That deserved 2-0! After a long ball from the defensive he is again Kulusevski, who makes the game fast with an outstanding contact and sends Morata on a journey. And this sunk safely in a direct duel with Paleari in the short corner.
Juventus controls the game at will in the first 20 minutes – the guests hardly have a chance. Now, however, the record champions should not be careless.
Kulusevski wants to know today! The Swede dribbles his way through the penalty area on his own, leaves several opponents standing and then finishes falling – but in Paleari he finds his master today.
Lennart Czyborra tunnels Wesley on the left side – the German makes a conspicuous game and keeps pushing hard. You can already see why he has become a regular with the Genoese.
Dejan Kulusevski is through again! The newcomer Juves runs towards Paleari after a steep ball with a lot of space, but the conclusion is too indecisive and nervous, so that Paleari can defuse in one-on-one.
Over several stations, Juventus come closer to the penalty area, Wesley comes to the end on the right corner of the penalty area, but Genoa’s substitute keeper Alberto Paleari is quickly down and can parry.
The Bianconeri stay tuned and continue to put the guests under pressure. So far, the handles have hardly got beyond the center line.
A Herculean task is now waiting for the Ligurians, who have to run behind a deficit early on at the Allianz Stadium. So far, Juve has controlled the game safely.
Goal for Juventus, 1-0 through Dejan Kulusevski
Lightning start for the record champions! Chiellini moves up with and is wonderful between the rows on the Swedes, whose ball acceptance is great, he lays the ball up to the penalty spot and transforms from there safely into the right corner.
It starts in Turin, Juventus toasts in their home colors. Genoa in dark playing clothes.
With the old lady, de Ligt, Cuadrado and Alex Sandro, three players with COVID-19 are out, Dybala is injured and Cristiano Ronaldo is spared for the time being. So today Morata and Kulusevski storm in the front line, while Bernardeschi and newcomer Wesley are supposed to push from the outside. Behind the veterans Buffon and Chiellini accompany the starting eleven debut of the 18-year-old Romanian Radu Drăgușin, who, like the 20-year-old Manolo Portanova, gets a chance under Pirlo from the start.
The Genoese, after all the oldest still existing football club in Italy, have recently been able to stabilize a little and are currently just above the line in Serie A – last weekend they beat Bologna 2-0. Before that, however, the even greater success was almost celebrated, because Genoa threw arch-rival Sampdoria out of the cup in the third round and is therefore allowed to play at Juventus tonight. Even if as a clear outsider, although with the ex-Schalke Marko Pjaca and the Berlin-born Lennart Czyborra, two faces known from Germany are in the starting eleven.
After several rounds of the small teams, only those teams that play internationally will intervene in Italy from the round of 16. So yesterday, Milan successfully prevailed against Torino on penalties, Inter followed suit this afternoon and Napoli also struggled to fulfill his duty against Empoli. Now it’s the turn of Juventus and with CFC Genoa they face an opponent who has been in the relegation battle of Serie A for the past few years and is fighting for survival this year as well.
The old lady has so far not been naked in the new year. After a rather mediocre first half of the season with the embarrassing 3-0 win against Florence at the end just before Christmas, Juve is getting better and better in the league and has won all three games, including the complicated away game against front runner Milan. In this way, the Bianconeri are getting closer and closer to the top of the league – and now they want to improve accordingly in the cup.
Buonasera and welcome to Coppa Italia on Wednesday evening! In the round of 16, record winner Juventus meets the blatant outsides of CFC Genoa.
