Juventus were able to come back twice against Atalanta thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo's two penalty kicks, the result gives the bianconeri an eight point lead with six matches to go. After the match, Maurizio Sarri spoke to Sky Sport:"We faced one of the most in form teams in all of Europe, at times we made the mistake to want to have the ball too close, and that is a risky way to defend Atalanta. It's so hard to play against Atalanta, at one point in second half, I thought we could win"
Sarri went on:"It was a difficult match for the strikers, more for Dybala than Ronaldo. In the final phase we tried to have Higuain open space for Ronaldo. Pjanic didn't feel well, I made different choices to avoid a muscular injury. We put more energy and defended further up in the second half, we conquered the ball multiple time in their half, playing against Atalanta is a problem for everyone"
