Eugenio Lamanna's own goal gives Juventus a 1-0 lead over 10-man Genoa at the halfway stage of their Serie A match.
An own goal from Eugenio Lamanna has given Juventus a 1-0 half-time lead in their Serie A match against Genoa this afternoon.
Alvaro Morata tried his luck in the opening minute for the visitors with a powerful volley from the edge of the box that was held by Lamanna.
Genoa soon began to see more of the ball and they threatened for the first time when Diego Capel arrived to meet a cross from Diego Perotti, but he could not keep his header down.
Juventus were then dealt a blow as Morata picked up an injury and had be replaced by Roberto Pereyra.
Moments later Paul Pogba curled a free kick over the bar and Patrice Evra headed another set piece off target, as the Old Lady started to provide more of an attacking threat.
The visitors made their pressure pay by taking the lead in the 36th minute as Pogba latched onto Pereyra's cross at the back post, and saw his effort hit the bar, before the ball rebounded off Lamanna and ended up in the back of the net.
Genoa were dealt another blow shortly before the break as Armando Izzo hauled down Juan Cuadrado and was sent off after picking up his second yellow card of the match.
