Arturo Vidal and Carlos Tevez are on target as Juventus take a 2-0 lead into the break against Genoa.

Juventus have taken control of their Serie A clash with struggling Genoa this afternoon, thanks to a contentious penalty decision midway through the first period.

Antonio Conte's side were awarded a spot kick after Kwadwo Asamoah went down under a trip from Davide Biondini, with the referee deciding that the wing-back was hauled over just inside the box.

Genoa's protests fell on deaf ears as Arturo Vidal stepped up to convert the spot kick, smashing home to break the deadlock with an assured penalty.

Andrea Pirlo then forced Mattia Perin into a smart stop from range, but home pressure eventually paid off as Juve doubled their advantage before the interval.

Carlos Tevez was the man to get their second, dribbling past his marker before aiming a clever snapshot beyond Perin and inside the far corner.
