Juventus quickly demoted Sassuolo from their Champions League illusion. They defeated Genoa 1-3 and moved to fourth in the Serie A standings with 23 points, behind AC Milan, Inter Milan and Genoa (by goal difference).
Paulo Dybala (ARG) scored the opener and Stefano Sturaro (ITA) equalized with a volley. Juventus had a total of three goals cancelled out due to different infringements but were also awarded two penalty kicks that Cristiano Ronaldo (POR) took advantage of two penalties give his team the win.
The first penalty was because Rovella (ITA) slided late into Cuadrado (COL), although the commentary regarding such penalty has been mixed. The second one was clear, as goalkeeper Mattia Perin (ITA) took recently-returned Álvaro Morata down (ESP). Ronaldo did not forgive any of the two.
