Borriello Spoils Juve's Party

Former Juventus striker Marco Borriello came back to haunt the club in their 1-1 draw against Genoa at Juventus Stadium on Saturday night.

Fabio Quagliarella opened the scoring for the home team after the break, but Borriello came off the bench to equalise and salvage a point for the visitors.

The Bianconeri started positively as Arturo Vidal sneaked in behind the Genoa defence and ran onto Leonardo Bonucci's pass only to lose possession to Luca Antonelli.

Shortly thereafter Claudio Marchisio also threatened when he managed to beat the offside trap only to send his shot wide of the target.

Juve should have been in front before the interval when Stephan Lichsteiner curled in a wonderful cross but Quagliarella couldn't provide the finish.

However, the breakthrough came nine minutes into the second period. This time the former Napoli striker found the back of the net via a deflection after Lichsteiner set it up with a deft pass.

Genoa silenced the Turin crowd only 14 minutes later. Borriello, who is on loan from Roma, headed home Juraj Kucka's cross at the far post to level matters.

Substitute Sebastian Giovinco came agonisingly close to restoring the hosts' lead but he hit the post with a superb free kick and they had to settle for a point.

A victory would have seen Juventus move eight points clear at the top of the Serie A standings.
