Juventus - minus Champions League hero Cristiano Ronaldo - fell to their first Serie A defeat of the season as they suffered a shock loss at Genoa.

Cristiano Ronaldo was rested after his hat trick had fired Juventus into the European quarterfinals with a comeback victory over Atletico Madrid.

Allegri's charges had breathing space in the last quarter of the first stanza after being under pressure for most of the half but they could not create chances themselves in a half that ended without goals.

After a goalless opening 45 minutes, former Juve midfielder Stefano Sturaro struck in the 72nd minute to open scoring.

Pandev drilled in Genoa's second, nine minutes from time, to send the home fans wild.

Juventus will attempt to extend their commanding 18-point advantage over Napoli at the top of Serie A with victory over 13th-placed Genoa.

Following his midweek heroics against Atletico Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo was left out of the squad entirely by boss Massimiliano Allegri for the first time this season when the Portuguese worldwide has been available.

"We did not put in a good performance, we made some mistakes and then this goal came out of nowhere".

Juventus were a different side at the start of the second half and looked to have taken the lead courtesy of a strike from Paulo Dybala ten minutes in, but the goal was dissalowed by the VAR system due to the player being in an off-side position.

"I am actually happy for Stefano, because if anyone had to score against us, I'm glad it was Sturaro".

Genoa inflicted a first league defeat of the season on Juventus and Massimiliano Allegri knows what was to blame for their poor display.
