Just before Ronaldo got substituted, Douglas Costa scored the 3rd goal assisted by Dybala. Genoa had no chance to the comeback but Andrea Pinamoni fetched a goal in the 77tth minute.
However, that attempt stayed as a consolation goal and it was too late to match the goal tally of the league leaders. With this, Juventus has 9 games to survive with Lazio lurking 4 points below them.
Any slip up can give the Rome based club to advance on the record time title-winning side. Although Juventus is due to meet Lazio in less than two weeks, as this match could turn out to be the title-deciding match until any prior slip-ups happen.
On the other hand, Ronaldo is competing with Lazio’s Ciro Immobile for the top-scorer award, but the Italian striker has a significant lead of 5 goals over the Portuguese sensation.
