Juan Cuadrado scored directly from a corner as Juventus comfortably beat struggling Genoa 2-0 to rise to fifth place in Serie A in coach Massimiliano Allegri's 250th Serie A victory.

Cuadrado struck a high, inswinging delivery into the far top corner after eight minutes to put Juve in front in unorthodox circumstances before Paulo Dybala wrapped up all three points with a late strike.

It was the eighth goal to be scored direct from a corner in Serie A since 2010, but bizarrely it was the second of the weekend after Hakan Calhanoglu's effort for Inter Milan in a 3-0 win at Roma on Saturday.

The win sees Juve move to 27 points, seven behind Atalanta in fourth as Allegri became the second manager in the three-points-for-a-win era to reach 250 league victories after Carlo Ancelotti on 275, with 150 of them coming while in charge of Juve.

Andriy Shevchenko's wait for his first win as Genoa coach goes on, with the Ukrainian's side still 18th with 10 points.

Wins for Lazio and Verona

Ciro Immobile scored twice as Lazio comfortably won 3-1 at Sampdoria, despite playing the final quarter of the match with 10 men.

Lazio dominated from the start at Sampdoria and were 3-0 up by half-time following Sergej Milinkovic-Savic's early opener and Immobile's double.

However, Milinkovic-Savic was sent off in the 67th minute after two yellow cards in quick succession, but Sampdoria only managed to pull one goal back in the final minute through Manolo Gabbiadini.

The win sees Lazio move level with city rivals Roma and nine points behind Atalanta in fourth.

Venezia appeared to be on their way to a comfortable victory after going 3-0 up inside 28 minutes but Hellas Verona fought back and went on to win 4-3.

Things appeared to be going to plan for the home side at half-time but the match turned shortly after the hour when Venezia defender Pietro Ceccaroni, who had scored the opener, was sent off for a desperate goal line clearance using his arm.

Gianluca Caprari converted the penalty to reduce the deficit to 3-2 as the Venezia forward had earlier headed into his own net.

Verona ended up their three-goal lead in the space of 15 minutes as Giovanni Simeone levelled in the 67th.

He then scored the winner five minutes from time with a superb strike from 20 yards into the top corner.

Sassuolo also produced a fight back, from two goals down, to draw 2-2 at Spezia.

Giacomo Raspadori scored twice in the second half for Sassuolo.

Meanwhile, Fiorentina moved into fifth after winning 3-2 at Bologna.

Nicolas Hofler got the fourth goal in the 19th minute, six minutes before setting up Lucas Holer for the fifth.

Gladbach coach Adi Hutter reacted with two substitutions around the half-hour mark, but it did little to change his teams fortunes.
