Genoa coach insists his men ‘are on the right track’ after making life difficult for Juventus until a late 3-1 capitulation.

Rolando Maran claims Genoa are on the right track after tonight's 3-1 loss to Juventus.

The Grifone

resisted well throughout the first half, then


scored the first goal in the 57th minute. Genoa returned to action a few minutes later with a goal from Stefano Storaro, but two late penalties from

Cristiano Ronaldo

made it 3-1.


Juventus is a team full of champions, so they make you run a great deal and in the long run, that fatigue will affect you,

" Maran told Sky Sport Italia.

"I am really disappointed for the lads, because they tried everything and perhaps I could've helped them more too this evening. We always tried to stay solid and play with the spirit of sacrifice.

"It's a difficult time at the moment, we often lack sharpness and aren't clear-headed in certain situations. For example, in the first half we got some fairly simple counter-attacks wrong.

"I am convinced we are on the right track, but the confidence comes with results. This is the spirit of a team that will eventually be able to celebrate."

Genoa do not seem to be very lucky because they have to face Milan on Wednesday.

"We knew that we'd be facing teams who are still unbeaten, but we went close to a positive result today and that should give us belief. If we learn from our mistakes and build on the positives, we can progress.

"I remain convinced this team has found the way out of this situation. It won't happen from one day to the next, but we'll be proved right in the long run."
