Juventus beat Atalanta 2-1, extend lead to 10 points
Juventus extended their Serie A lead to 10 points after coming from behind to beat Atalanta 2-1 on Friday.

Turin: Juventus extended their Serie A lead to 10 points after coming from behind to beat relegation-threatened Atalanta 2-1 on Friday.

Giuliano Migliaccio put Atalanta ahead in the 25th minute, before two goals in quick succession from Fernando Llorente and Andrea Pirlo gave Juve a half-time lead.

Migliacco scored with a header off a corner, Llorente equalized from close-range in the 39th even though Carlos Tevez appeared offside, and Pirlo scored the winner in the 45th with a shot from 25 meters.

Juventus host Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday and needed a boost of confidence after drawing two of their three previous matches.

But Pirlo's spectacular winner aside, the three-time defending champion showed only glimmers of quality.

Paul Pogba was involved in a couple early chances for Juve but the Turin power produced little in the second half, appearing content to try and hold on to its one-goal lead.

"Today winning was the most important thing, even if we played poorly. We wanted to send a message to the league after the ugly game in Cesena and we did that and got three points," Pirlo said, referring to last weekend's 2-2 draw.

Juventus were shown a season-high five yellow cards.

Atalanta remained in 17th place, one spot and three points above the drop zone.

Second-placed Roma visit Hellas Verona on Sunday.

Also this weekend, Sampdoria face Genoa in a derby and struggling AC Milan host Cesena.

On Monday, Napoli host Sassuolo and Inter Milan play at Cagliari.
