Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini was delighted with victory over Genoa.

Chiellini admits they went into the game under pressure.

“We analysed everything over the past few days and saw that certain things could have gone differently,” the centre-back said.

“But I can say that I saw the right spark in Madrid and today we once again saw another Juventus, ruthless and aggressive, just as the Coach wants.

“We started with the right anger, the right aggression and swarmed Genoa in the first half. Only an inspired Mattia Perin performance [in goal] prevented us from adding to our tally.

“It was a true Juve performance. Now we’ll be confident in approaching Wednesday’s game against Catania.”
