Juventus-Genoa Preview: Bianconeri look to halt slide

Juventus-Genoa Preview: Bianconeri look to halt slide

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

Juventus go in search of a swift reaction to back-to-back defeats when they entertain Genoa in Serie A on Sunday.

The reigning champions suffered a second-half collapse as they let a two-goal advantage slip in their 4-2 defeat to Fiorentina in their last Serie A outing.

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

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

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

Conte has no fresh injury concerns, with Mirko Vucinic and Simone Pepe (both thigh) set to be their 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 their 2-1 triumph over Chievo last time out, as his double sandwiched an effort from Simone Bentivoglio.

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