Preziosi: Genoa were lucky
Genoa president Enrico Preziosi admitted his side were "very fortunate" to come away with a point against Juventus today. Juventus hit the post three times but were held to a goalless draw at the Luigi Ferraris stadium.
"Juventus clearly deserved to win," Preziosi told Gazzetta dello Sport. "We had a few chances but Juve were a class above from the first to the final minute. If it had ended 2-0 in favour of Juve, we would have had few complaints.
"I am holding on tight to this point that I consider very fortunate in the circumstances. Compliments to Juve for their performance."
The result was Juve's sixth draw in their last seven league games, including Wednesday's 1-1 stalemate at Bologna, and left the Turin giants four points behind league leaders AC Milan with 12 games remaining.
"Despite the fact they played on Wednesday, Juventus showed great strength," Preziosi said. "It's no coincidence they are fighting for the Scudetto."
