Cristiano Ronaldo scored an 88th minutes goal to give Juventus a desired victory in their 2-1 win over Lazio at the Olimpico stadium.
The late spot which the former Real Madrid forward took for the Italian giant ensured Juve move 11 points clear off the table and keep their hope of winning an eight consecutive title alive.
A goalless first-half draw saw both sides enter the second-half with determination, but it was Lazio whose efforts broke the deadlock as Emre Can’s own-goal gave the home side a lead in 59th minutes.
The lead put Juve under pressure who were now to contend with both getting an equalizer as well as pursuing a victory.
But 70th minute substitute Joao Cancelo struck from close range in the 73rd minutes to level the scoreline before Ronaldo netted a spot kick in the 88th minutes to catapult Juve to a wide margin lead.
Juventus will also be hoping to reach the semifinal of the Coppa Italia on Wednesday when they face Atalanta.
