Juventus cemented their lead at the top of the Serie A table after beating Lazio in the final moments thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty. That, compounded with Napoli’s draw at AC Milan means the Bianconeri are now 11 point clear of their nearest rivals.
Elsewhere in Serie A, Inter crumbled at Torino, Roma lost a three-goal lead to eventually draw at Atalanta, while there were crucial wins for Fiorentina, Frosinone and SPAL.
