Juventus boss Gigi del Neri was delighted with their 3-2 victory over Genoa.

Luca Toni changed the game against his former Genoa teammates, as Juventus emerged 3-2 winners.

"We have grown and fought hard to earn this victory,” said Del Neri. “The lads did well, both today and last week against Roma.

“It was difficult to turn the game around, but we didn’t allow Genoa to get back into it. We had seven scoring opportunities this afternoon, so it was a very different game to the one over Brescia.”

Juve are back in the race for a Champions League spot, but when asked if he thought they could do it, Genoa Coach Ballardini was totally dismissive.

“Can they finish in the top four? No. As for us, it is possible to put in a good performance in Turin and not get the result anyway.”
