GENOA, Italy, June 30 (Reuters) - Juventus secured a 3-1 win at lowly Genoa on Tuesday to stay four points clear at the top of Serie A thanks to a solo goal by Paulo Dybala, a long-range rocket from Cristiano Ronaldo and an exquisite curling shot by Douglas Costa.

Genoa held out defiantly in the first half with goalkeeper Mattia Perin saving everything his former club could throw at home but they had no answer to Juve's individual brilliance in the second period.

Dybala broke through when he collected the ball just outside the area, slalomed past three defenders and scored with a deflected shot in the 50th minute, Ronaldo thumped home a ferocious 25-metre drive seven minutes later and Costa added the third before Andrea Pinamonti pulled one back.
