Juventus are looking to bounce back from their underwhelming 1-1 draw with newly-promoted Lecce as they take on Genoa.
Maurizio Sarri’s side remain at the top of the Serie A table, a single point ahead of their title rivals Inter.
A VAR-centric fixture against Lecce caused frustration for the Old Lady, who had two penalty appeals waved away and a goal ruled out.
Juventus remain unbeaten in all competitions. They sit atop both the Serie A table and Group D in the Champions League, and they had won seven on the trot, including an impressive victory at the San Siro against title challengers Inter.
Genoa sit in 17th place, one point above the relegation zone. The Rossoblu picked up their second win in Serie A this season when they came from behind to beat Brescia 3-1 on Saturday, a first win for new manager Thiago Motta in his debut clash.
Genoa grabbed their third win in all competitions in Thiago Motta’s first game as Genoa boss. The new manager bounce will be of great benefit to the visitors, who have struggled all season, but how far it can propel them is yet to be seen.
Genoa have lost five of their last seven games, with only one win, and a defeat could leave them in the bottom three come their weekend fixture against Udinese.
Juventus have faced Genoa on 31 occasions, having won 19, drawn eight and lost four.Genoa are unbeaten in their last two fixtures with Juve, having beaten them 2-0 in March.
Juventus’ last victory came back in January 2018, a 1-0 win courtesy of a Douglas Costa goal.
Juventus have several injury concerns as Aaron Ramsey and Douglas Costa are both doubts, and Giorgio Chiellini is still out with a long-term knee injury. Marko Pjaca and goalkeeper Matia Perin have returned to training but are unlikely to feature for Wednesday’s hosts.
Cristiano Ronaldo was rested by Sarri in Juve’s last outing and is expected to return for the game against Genoa.
