Cristiano Ronaldo scored his fifth goal for Juventus but Genoa rallied to claim a 1-1 draw in Serie A on Saturday.

The Serie A champions threw everything forward in search of a winning goal in the closing stages, but they were unable to carve out another opening as they drop points for the first time this season.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri blamed his players for being sidetracked by their Champions League game at Manchester United on Tuesday.

Ronaldo, despite the turmoil of explosive rape allegations that surfaced before the global break, notched up his fifth goal for his new employers since his headline move from Real Madrid in the 18th minute, ironically helped by a mistake from Genoa's top-scoring Polish striker Krzysztof Piatek.

Ronaldo is set to feature at Old Trafford following his one-game ban in the European competition.

But they may have more substantive talks on the fringes of a G-20 summit in Argentina later in November. It banned nuclear and conventional missiles with ranges of 500 to 1,000km, as well as their launchers.

Genoa had to wait until the 53rd minute for their first attempt on target but Juve keeper Wojciech Szczesny tipped Krzysztof Piatek's shot around the post.

"They're games in which the Scudetto can be won and lost".

Juve are now four points clear on top of the table ahead of second-placed Napoli.

Juve paid heavily for failing to kill off the encounter when Bessa headed a cross from Christian Kouame into the back of the net on 67 minutes. Earlier, Roma suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to SPAL courtesy of an Andrea Petagna penalty and a Kevin Bonifazi header either side of the break.

Ronaldo's only outing against Mourinho's United was in the 2017 UEFA Super Cup, featuring for seven minutes as a substitute in Madrid's 2-1 win.
