Serie A Preview: Juventus - Genoa

Serie A Preview: Juventus - Genoa

The Serie A champion has tasted defeat in consecutive matches to Fiorentina and Real Madrid and will hope to get back to winning ways this weekend.

Juventus goes in search of a swift reaction to back-to-back defeats when the club entertains Genoa in Serie A on Sunday.

The reigning champion suffered a second-half collapse as it let a two-goal advantage slip in the 4-2 defeat to Fiorentina in its last Serie A outing.

Antonio Conte's side followed up that disappointment with a 2-1 loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League at Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday.

Despite those setbacks, Juventus is in good shape overall in Serie A, having amassed 19 points from eight games to sit third in the table.

The Turin outfit has a 100 percent winning record at Juventus Stadium in the league this season too, seeing off Lazio, Verona and AC Milan on its own turf so far.

Conte has no fresh injury concerns, with Mirko Vucinic and Simone Pepe (both thigh) set to be the only absentees.

Gian Piero Gasperini - who began his second spell at Genoa last month - will look to guide his team to a second consecutive Serie A victory.

Alberto Gilardino was the hero in the 2-1 triumph over Chievo last time out, as his double sandwiched an effort from Simone Bentivoglio.

But Genoa has struggled for consistency this season, and sits 15th position having mustered just two victories from eight league games.
