Juventus enforced a media blackout following an offside ruling against Simone Pepe’s goal in Sunday’s goalless draw against Genoa. “Footage speaks for itself,” the club defiantly said on Twitter after the match. The Bianconeri strongly believe that the goal, scored late in the second half, should have stood. Juventus coach Antonio Conte was undergoing a touchline ban after being sent off in Wednesday’s 1-1 draw against Bologna. He had also berated the decisions made by referees after the match last week. Conte had earlier complained that referees had been reluctant to give penalties or free-kicks this season to the Turin side. “We are never awarded penalties. The more we are denied penalties, the more annoyed we will be,” he lashed out to Sky Sport Italia. “We may not get penalties, but at least it would not bad to get fouls outside the box, like the one that Marco Borriello suffered. “After all, we have good free-kick takers.” Juventus registered their fourth successive draw and the side, still unbeaten in the league, are four points behind leaders AC Milan.
