Ronaldo sets new record as Genoa hold Juventus

Juventus' flawless start to the season came to an end in Turin on Saturday as Genoa earned a 1-1 Serie A draw on Ivan Juric's return as coach.

Genoa were threatening to pull level in the opening stages of the second half, which prompted Allegri to introduce Douglas Costa for Juan Cuadrado.

The Portugal captain tapped in, after Joao Cancelo's shot was blocked, having earlier hit the post with a header.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri blamed his players for being sidetracked by their Champions League game at Manchester United on Tuesday.

Ronaldo reached the landmark in the 18th minute at the Allianz Stadium, finishing from close range as Genoa goalkeeper Ionut Radu made a mess of dealing with a corner.

But Switzerland would only be obliged to follow suit if the United Nations chose to take punitive measures, he added. If that target is achieved, the Saudi share could be worth around $16 billion.

His departure came shortly after the Turin side signed five-time World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

The Argentine moved to Milan on loan in August after two seasons at Juventus, where he won two Serie A and Coppa Italia titles.

Ronaldo eventually got a first win over a Mourinho team in a Premier League outing at Old Trafford in November 2005, playing the full game and setting up Darren Fletcher's victor to end Chelsea's 40-match unbeaten league run.

The result gives Napoli the chance to close to within four points of Juve at the top of the table and sees their 11-game winning run in all competitive competitions come to an end just three days before they face Manchester United in the Champions League.

The Serie A giants beat Valencia 2-0 on match day one, before thumping Young Boys 3-0.
