Genoa president Enrico Preziosi has accused Juventus striker Alessandro Del Piero of diving to win a penalty as the Bianconeri won 3-2 in Turin.

With 12 minutes left, Del Piero went to ground on the edge of the Genoa box, which Preziosi claimed was both a dive and outside the area.

The former Italy international slotted home the winning spot-kick and Preziosi told Sky Sport 24: "The penalty was non-existent and it's the second in three games in favour of Juventus.

"After Del Piero's actions it seems evident to me that sporting behaviour no longer exists. Del Piero is a champion, like (Francesco) Totti. But sometimes champions overstep the line.

"The relationship we have with Juventus remains good. There is no problem with the directors."
