Ronaldo started that with his immaculate dribbling and creating space for Morata. This guy is unreal

Kulusevski looking very bright as a second striker. Looks like an interesting position for him.

Kulusevski control is very good, positioning, vision + passing. But, he really need to improve his finishing. If he manages that, he'll be one of the best players of his generation. #JuveGenoa

Absolutely love Kulusevski and the way he plays. So smooth on the ball and so hard to stop. The prospect of Chiesa & Kulusevski playing at their best alongside Ronaldo should excite all Juve fans.
