Juventus held by Genoa to End perfect start

Cristiano Ronaldo scored but wasteful Juventus had to settle for a 1-1 stalemate at home to Genoa to bring to an end the Italian champions’ perfect start to the season on Saturday.

With eight Serie A wins and two in the Champions League Juve were all set to extend that fine run when Ronaldo put Massimiliano Allegri’s men into a first-half lead.

But Juve were made to pay for failing to convert a hatful of chances when Daniel Bessa headed in a second-half equaliser.
