Andreas Pereira: 'Manchester United pumped up for Juventus clash'

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his fifth goal for Juventus but Genoa rallied to claim a 1-1 draw in Serie A on Saturday.

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

"We have to take the positives from the game and I think the way we played in the second half especially, we were fantastic at times".

Ronaldo's career has seen him plunder goals with Manchester United and Real Madrid before his move to Italy in July, and his prolific form has continued.

Lionel Messi is next best on 389.

Juve seemed eager to score a second as soon as possible, but struggled to convert their possession into meaningful chances, and Wojciech Szczesny had to be alert to deny Krzysztof Piatek an equaliser from distance.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo stated that Neymar could leave PSG for a similar fee to that which lured him away from the Camp Nou in the first place.

At one stage, Ronaldo looked to be in danger of missing the game entirely after he was shown a red card in Juve's Champions League opener against Valencia for pulling Jeison Murillo's hair, but in the end he was only given a one-match ban.

"They're games in which the Scudetto can be won and lost".

Napoli cut the gap on Juventus to four points with a third successive win in all competitions and a third clean sheet in a row after a 3-0 win at Udinese.

However, Daniel Bessa equalised with a header, from Christian Kouame's cross.

Earlier, Roma came unstuck 2-0 to visiting minnows SPAL to dash their hopes of a fourth straight league win.

SPAL, who came a highly respectable 13th in Serie A following promotion last season, went ahead with a slickly-converted Andrea Petagna spot-kick on 38 minutes.
