There was tension in the opening stages of Juventus–Genoa as the Bianconeri captain Danilo came face-to-face with Italy striker Mateo Retegui, who had tried to stop Wojciech Szczesny from resuming play quickly.

The incident happened at minute eight of Sunday’s Serie A match between Juventus and Genoa at the Allianz Stadium.

Szczesny claimed the ball from a corner kick and was about to resume play with a long pass, but Genoa and Italy striker Retegui stood in front of him and ran in a zig-zag, preventing the Juventus keeper from even kicking the ball.

Juventus fans in the stands protested loudly and Danilo vehemently complained and came face-to-face with the Azzurri striker.

Juventus and Genoa players arrived to divide the contenders and referee Antonio Giua spoke to both players without using any card.

Football Italia is among the accredited media at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday.
