Ronaldo received a player-of-the-month award before kick-off and continued his good recent form with the opening goal, becoming the first player to score 400 goals in Europe's top-five leagues in the process.

Genoa finally grabbed their goal when Daniel Bessa scored off a header in the 66th minute.

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.

The Portuguese opened his account just five minutes later, tapping in from close range after Genoa failed to clear their lines when Joao Cancelo's shot took an awkward deflection inside the box. The Italian champions, though, were allowed to fill the seats with local school children.

Krzysztof Piatek, who has been in fine form this season, almost equalised with a long-range shot in the 55th minute but Wojciech Szczesny kept it out.

Allegri introduced Paulo Dybala off the bench and both he and Miralem Pjanic fired narrowly wide from distance, but Genoa withstood the late pressure to move 10th in the table and give Napoli the chance to close the gap to the leaders.
