Genoa president Enrico Preziosi admits they were fortunate with their draw against Juventus.

Juve hit the woodwork three times during a 0-0 draw at Marassi, but then refused to speak to the media in protest at refereeing decisions.

“I will just say this: on the field, Juventus clearly deserved to win,” said the Genoa patron.

“It’s true we had a few chances, but Juve were a class above from the first to the 90th minute. If it had ended 2-0, we’d have had few complaints.

“Despite the fact they played on Wednesday, Juventus showed great strength and it’s no coincidence they are fighting for the Scudetto.

“Having said that, at the end we should’ve had a penalty, just as Simone Pepe’s offside goal could’ve been allowed. I’ll be honest here.

“I don’t know if is because we were at the end of the game that it wasn’t given, but I am not angry and have no intention of complaining. I just want it explained."
