Juve suffered but they managed to beat Genoa, to qualify to the Quarter finals of the Coppa Italia.
Juventus scored right at the outset, with a goal by Dejan Kulusevski (SWE) just at minute 2′ after a great pass by Chiellini (ITA).
Álvaro Morata (ESP) would score the second for the Bianconera at 23′ and Genoa got closer with a header goal by Lennart Czyborra (DEU) at 28′.
In the last part of the first half, Juventus looked tranquil, controlling the ball and passing it orderly.
Close to the end of the first half, Manolo Portanova (ITA) put the ball past the line but it was deemed an offside. No goal.
At 74′ the match was tied with a goal by Filippo Melegoni (ITA), who received the ball in a rebound and had enough time to set the ball and strike it from outside the box to the angle. A deserved score, as they were controlling the ball.
Cristiano Ronaldo (POR) entered at 88′ to try to avoid the match from going to the extra time.
Juventus has the first clear in the extra time, with a ball that was barely saved on the line by the defenders.
Hamza Rafia (TUN) scored the 3-2 for Juventus. He missed a chance right next to the goal line but he tried again and the second was good. The score would prevail until the end.
Had he scored, Cristiano Ronaldo (POR) would have become the professional football player with most official goals. It did not happen, indeed.
Earlier this morning, Inter beat Fiorentina 1-2 as visitors in the last seconds of the second extra time (they tied 1-1 in regular time) and Napoli beat Empoli 3-2.
