T + NS – normal size

Juan Cuadrado scored straight from a corner kick as Juventus easily beat Genoa 2-0 on Sunday and moved up to sixth place after coach Massimiliano Allegri claimed his 250th Serie A win.

Cuadrado sent a high ball into the far top corner of the goal in the eighth minute to put Juventus in front, and Paulo Dybala confirmed the victory with a goal in the last minutes.

This is only the eighth goal to come from a corner kick in the Italian league since 2010, but oddly enough, it was the second goal of this round after Hakan Calhanoglu’s goal for Inter Milan in a 3-0 win over Roma on Saturday.
“We (Cuadrado) told us he wanted a cross,” Dybala told DAZON.

“We controlled the whole game, and the defenders did a great job helping us go up. We were more calm after Cuadrado’s goal, but we had to get things done early.”
Juventus jumped to sixth place with 27 points, equal to fifth, Fiorentina, to become the second coach in the era of three points against victory to achieve 250 league wins after Carlo Ancelotti, the current Real Madrid coach, who has 275 wins.
Andrei Shevchenko will continue to wait for his first victory while coach of Genoa, and the struggling Ukrainian team is still in 18th place with ten points.

Juventus could have won by more goals if he succeeded in translating complete control into goals, as he finished the match with possession of the ball with 70 percent and scored 27 balls to none for Genoa.
After Cuadrado’s corner kick, Genoa goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu saved the score and saved a header from Matisse de Ligt, then saved an attempt by Alvaro Morata in the first half, before preventing the Spanish striker from scoring again after the break.
Sirigo saved two consecutive attempts by Dybala and Cuadrado in the 65th minute.

Morata had an argument with Allegri outside the field when he was substituted in the 73rd minute, but the tension ended when Juventus secured victory thanks to Dybala’s goal eight minutes from the end.
“I didn’t want to replace him, but he received a yellow card, and I preferred to take him off,” Allegri said. “Nothing happened and I’m sorry that Alvaro played a great game, even without scoring.”
