Milan, May 6, 2022 (AFP) - On a night of wild swings in Serie A, Juventus conceded two late goals to lose at Genoa.

Juventus dominated relegation-haunted Genoa only to concede an 87th minute equaliser and a 96th minute penalty, converted by Domenico Criscito, who had missed a late derby penalty a week earlier.

"Football gives and takes," said Criscito.

Genoa remained 19th and second from bottom, but closed to a point behind resurgent Salernitana in 17th.

Juventus dominated but only led by one goal, a beautiful strike by Paulo Dybala, in the 48th minute.

The Argentine later hit a post and Dusan Vlahovic and Moise Kean also squandered chances.

With the Italian Cup Final looming next week, Juventus made changes.

Vlahovic and Dybala were among stars watching from the bench by the time Albert Gudmundsson scored an 87th minute equaliser.

Six minutes into added time, Juventus defender Mattia De Sciglio conceded a penalty.

Genoa captain Criscito had been given a similar chance in the Genoa derby the week before but squandered a 96th minute penalty against Sampdoria that would have given his team a draw.

But he didn't hesitate and this time scored to earn an unexpected three points.

"We're still here," said Criscito.
