In lockstep with the two Milanese clubs, Juventus Turin also reached the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia.
In the 3-2 win against Serie A relegation candidate Genoa, Juve also had to go through extra time until Andrea Pirlo’s team can celebrate their promotion.
Kulusevski (2nd) and Morata (23rd) provide clear conditions early on, but Czyborra (28th) gives Genoa hope again. Juve, which spares many regular players, begins to stagger more and more and actually conceded the equalizer through Melegoni (74th).
Rafia scores for Juve for the first time in extra time (104th), but the game remains exciting because Juventus does not play the counter opportunities well and Genoa continues to believe in the equalizer. After 120 minutes, however, it is over and the Turin superstar Cristiano Ronaldo can look forward to a largely deserved promotion.
