Ronaldo notched his first Seria A goal in over a month on Saturday, tapping in a deflected shot to put Juventus up 1-0 on Genoa at Allianz Stadium in Torino, Italy.

Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo has made history by becoming the first player ever to score 400 goals in Europe.

Emre Can is unlikely to face Manchester United in the Champions League on Tuesday night after Juventus revealed he "will undergo clinical tests" for a thyroid issue. Daniel Bessa equalized in the second half to make it 1-1.

Ronaldo scored 84 in the Premier League for Manchester United, 311 in La Liga for Real Madrid and he has five in Serie A for Juventus so far.

Keita, who has featured in all eight league matches for the club so far, went off with a muscle problem in Guinea's 1-1 draw with Rwanda on Tuesday.

At one stage, Ronaldo looked to be in danger of missing the game entirely after he was shown a red card in Juve's Champions League opener against Valencia for pulling Jeison Murillo's hair, but in the end he was only given a one-match ban.

Energised, the 23-year-old should have levelled seconds later, outjumping Leonardo Bonucci but his header went wide. Christian Kouame picked up a loose ball when Juve's defence assumed it was going out for a corner, and his cross was met by the unmarked Bessa, who headed home from six yards out.

Despite dominating the game, Napoli had to wait until the last 10 minutes to wrap up the points thanks to a Dries Mertens penalty and a strike from Croatian midfielder Marko Rog.

The hosts had beaten Frosinone, Empoli and above all city rivals Lazio and had been hoping to improve on their sixth place in Serie A ahead of Tuesday's home Champions League game with CSKA Moscow.
