Juventus dropped points in Serie A for the first time this season as Genoa held them to a 1-1 draw in Turin on Saturday.
A mistake by Genoa’s goal sensation Krzysztof Piatek lets Cristiano Ronaldo in for Juventus’ opener to score his fifth goal of the season.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s first-half strike was cancelled out by Daniel Bessa as the visitors ended a five-game top-flight losing streak at the Allianz Stadium.
The result gives Napoli the chance to close to within four points of Juve at the top of the table and sees their 11-game winning run in all competitive competitions come to an end just three days before they face Manchester United in the Champions League.
Ronaldo received a player-of-the-month award before kick-off and continued his good recent form with the opening goal, becoming the first ever player to score 400 goals in the top five European leagues – 84 in the Premier League for Manchester United, 311 in La Liga for Real Madrid and now five in Serie A for Juventus.
Ronaldo is the second Portuguese player in the last 10 years to score five goals (or more) in a Serie A season. Bruno Fernandes also scored five for Fiorentina in 2016-17.
