Juventus 4-0 Genoa

Juventus v Genoa
Genoa are 16th in Serie A and without a win since 5 March

League leaders Juventus thrashed Genoa to extend their unbeaten home run in Serie A to 33 matches.

Ezequiel Munoz tapped in an own goal to give the hosts the lead.

Paulo Dybala doubled their advantage from the edge of the area two minutes later and Mario Mandzukic curled a half-volley past keeper Eugenio Lamanna to make it 3-0 before half-time.

Leonardo Bonucci's long-range looping effort put the result beyond doubt, as Juventus moved 11 points clear.

Juve's closest title rivals Roma face bottom side Pescara on Monday but even with a win they will have a battle on their hands to close an eight-point gap with five games remaining.
