Ronaldo sets new record as Genoa hold Juventus

But Juve were made to pay for failing to convert a hatful of chances when Daniel Bessa headed in a second-half equaliser.

Cristiano Ronaldo returns to Old Trafford to face former club Manchester United with Juventus on Tuesday and he will he hoping to improve on a poor record against Jose Mourinho.

Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score 400 goals in Europe's top five leagues as Juventus dropped points for the first time this season.

A communications mix-up saw Piatek leave Joao Cancelo's blocked shot for his keeper, but the loose ball fell at Ronaldo's feet and he tapped in to an empty net.

Lionel Messi is next best on 389.

Ronaldo eventually got a first win over a Mourinho team in a Premier League outing at Old Trafford in November 2005, playing the full game and setting up Darren Fletcher's victor to end Chelsea's 40-match unbeaten league run.

But Bessa's header rescued a draw after some slack Juve defending and means Massimiliano Allegri's side no longer have a flawless record in 2018-19.

Juve are now four points clear on top of the table ahead of second-placed Napoli. However, it was not enough to lead Juventus to Champions League glory which they have been chasing from quite sometime now.

With the pressure off, Marko Rog then added a third with five minutes to go.

Earlier, Roma came unstuck 2-0 to visiting minnows SPAL to dash their hopes of a fourth straight league win.

The Croatian boss replaced Davide Ballardini before the worldwide break for his third spell in charge of Genoa and he made an immediate impact as the Italian champions failed to record a victory for the first time in nine league games this season.

The Serie A giants beat Valencia 2-0 on match day one, before thumping Young Boys 3-0.
