Del Neri sees Juve improvement

Gigi Del Neri says Juventus “have grown” in recent weeks and fully deserved their victory, but Davide Ballardini doubts they'll finish fourth.

The Bianconeri were twice trailing in Turin, but fought back for the 3-2 success against Genoa in the lunch-time kick-off.

“We have grown and fought hard to earn this victory,” said Del Neri. “The lads did well, both today and last week against Roma.

“It was difficult to turn the game around, but we didn't allow Genoa to get back into it. We had seven scoring opportunities this afternoon, so it was a very different game to the one over Brescia.”

Juve are back in the race for a Champions League spot, but when asked if he thought they could do it, Genoa Coach Ballardini was totally dismissive.

“Can they finish in the top four? No. As for us, it is possible to put in a good performance in Turin and not get the result anyway.”
