Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored 32 goals for Juventus in all competitions this season.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored two penalties as Juventus survived a scare to move eight points clear at the top of Serie A with a draw against Atalanta.
The visitors, who controlled long periods of the game, twice went ahead in Turin, via Duvan Zapata and Ruslan Malinovskiy.
However, Ronaldo took his tally to 28 goals in 28 league games with his second penalty in the 90th minute.
Second-placed Lazio had earlier fallen to a shock 2-1 home defeat by Sassuolo.
Atalanta, who have scored 19 goals more than any other side in Italy’s top flight this season, twice appeared on course to move up to second in the table with a 10th straight win.
Alejandro Gomez’s clever turn and pass released Zapata to open the scoring – with Colombia forward fending off Matthijs de Ligt and then sliding his shot past Juve goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.
Marten de Roon’s handball presented Ronaldo with his first goal of the evening from the penalty spot but Malinovskiy’s low drive saw Gian Piero Gasperini’s side regain the initiative.
Ronaldo, who was quiet throughout, converted his second penalty of the night after another handball – this time from Luis Muriel – to rescue a point for Maurizio Sarri’s side.
On The Other Side of Story
Inter Milan put more pressure on stuttering Serie A leaders Juventus when two goals by Romelu Lukaku and one from Alexis Sanchez gave them a 3-0 win at relegation-threatened Genoa on Saturday.
Inter, who have two games left, moved above Atalanta into second place with 76 points, four behind Juventus who host Sampdoria on Sunday. Juve, who have three games to play, will wrap up the title if they beat Sampdoria but they have looked shaky recently with one win in five games.
Genoa stayed 17th with 36 points, four clear of the relegation zone although Lecce, who are immediately below them, have a game in hand away to Bologna on Sunday.
Lukaku broke the deadlock when he got free of Cristian Zapata to head in from Cristiano Biraghi’s cross in the 34th minute although Filip Jagiello struck the upright from a free-kick shortly afterward as the Griffins nearly equalized.
Inter coach Antonio Conte has complained repeatedly about the difficulties posed by a hectic fixture list and high temperatures, and his side seemed to be feeling the effects with the sluggish second-half performance.
Inter defender Andrea Ranocchia set up a Genoa counter-attack with a wayward pass out of defense but made amends by blocking Andrea Favilli as he ran on to Nicolo Rovella’s through ball.
Yet Inter wrapped the game up in the last 10 minutes. Victor Moses slipped past a defender and his low cross found Sanchez who scored from close range with a shot off the underside of the bar with seven minutes left.
In stoppage time, Lukaku collected a pass out of defense, burst forward, cut inside a defender and drove the ball into the far corner for his 23rd league goal of the season.
