Cristiano Ronaldo Accused Of Diving To Win Last Minute Penalty For Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo has been accused of diving to win a last minute penalty for Juventus against Genoa last night.

It is particularly harsh on Thiago Motta's side who had battled with nine men for the final half hour of the game.

Leonardo Bonucci open the scoring for Juve in the first half but Genoa struck back before half time with an unorthodox finish from Christian Kouame.



The last gasp victory moved Maurizio Sarri's men back to the top of Serie A and a point ahead of Inter Milan who edged past Brescia 2-1 on Tuesday.

Italian legend Gianluigi Buffon made a record-equalling 513th league appearance for Juve, moving him level with Alessandro del Piero.
