Ronaldo hits historic all-time first as perfect run ends

CRISTIANO Ronaldo’s 400th goal in Europe’s top five leagues was not enough to extend Juventus’ perfect start in Italy’s Serie A to nine games. Instead, Genoa hit back through Daniel Bessa for a 1-1 draw which allowed Napoli to cut the deficit at the top of Serie A to four points with a 3-0 win at Udinese.

Ronaldo became the first player to reach the 400 goals mark in the 18th minute at the Allianz Stadium, finishing from close range as Genoa goalkeeper Ionut Radu made a mess of dealing with a corner.

Juventus drop first points with draw against Genoa0:00

Serie A: Juventus have dropped their first points for the season with a 1-1 draw against Genoa. Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 400th League goal in Europe in the clash.

But Genoa enjoyed the better of the second half and got their reward after 67 minute when Bessa headed home.

A Ronaldo header triggered Juve’s furious search for a winner but Miralem Pjanic missed on 74 minutes before substitute Paulo Dybala fired twice off target. “We exited the game after a good start of the second half. They played well, we did not get the second goal and they struck,” Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri said.

“These things should happen because games like these are important to win titles.

“Possibly we started thinking about the Manchester (United) game (in the Champions League on Tuesday). But today we needed more concentration and more goals.”
