Turin: Juventus moved within just one point of leaders Napoli after a 1-0 victory against Genoa 1-0 on Monday.
Douglas Costa scored the only goal of the match in the 16th minute, slotting the ball into the bottom left corner after playing a one-two with Mario Mandzukic.
Though it was the first goal conceded by Genoa in five league matches, Juve were never under any real pressure, with Wojciech Szczesny having a comfortable evening under the bar.
While Juve have 53 points, third-placed Lazio are on 43, with a game in hand.
Earlier on Sunday, Napoli beat Atalanta 1-0.
