Cristiano Ronaldo and Miralem Pjanic sealed a 2-1 victory for Juventus over Bologna in Serie A at the Allianz Stadium in Turin.
The defending champion (22) is still only one point clear of second-placed Inter Milan (21). Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez scored two goals each as Inter survived a late Sassuolo fightback.
The tourist won by a scoreline of 4-3. Martinez struck inside two minutes before Domenico Berardi equalised. But Lukaku gave Inter breathing space with a powerful strike and a successful penalty before half-time. Martinez stretched his side’s lead to 4-1 from the penalty spot after the break, but Sassuolo hit back through Filip Djuricic and Jeremie Boga. Antonio Conte’s team held on in a nervy finish as the home side pressed for a remarkable equaliser. Atalanta (17) stays third after throwing away a three-goal lead against Lazio. It settled for one point in a 3-3 draw. Fourth-placed Napoli (16) closed the gap to just one point after Arkadiusz Milik’s double saw off Verona.
