      From the penalty saved by Buffon, to the incredible free-kick of Pirlo

      After last year's 4-2 comeback win for the Bianconeri at Genoa, we take a look even further back to a particular match in 2014, on March 16 of that year.

      Juve arrive at the Stadio Marassi as league leaders, but the match against Genoa is anything but simple. The hosts are physical, strong, and leaving the Bianconeri very few spaces. Despite this, Juventus managed to put the back in the back of the net twice in the first half, both times through Dani Osvaldo, although both times they were annulled.

      In the second half, with less than 20 minutes to go, the hosts were awarded a penalty for an Arturo Vidal handball. Emmanuele Calaiò stepped up to take, but Gianluigi Buffon expertly kept out the effort.

      It would prove to be the turning point for the Bianconeri, who were then given a free-kick in a good position in the 89th minute. Andrea Pirlo stepped up and you can guess what happened next....goal for Juventus and a 1-0 win to take back to Turin!

      MATCH HIGHLIGHTS: Genoa 0-1 Juventus
