La Dea were coming off nine consecutive Serie A victories and it showed, as they dominated the first half and went in front when Duvan Zapata combined with Papu Gomez to carve the defence apart.

It was a different game after the break, the Bianconeri stepping up the intensity and the pressure, earning a penalty converted by Ronaldo with sheer power.

Pierluigi Gollini performed a stunning save to deny Ronaldo and Atalanta restored their lead with a rocket off Malinovskyi’s weaker right foot.

Juve would not be beaten and Luis Muriel was made to pay for holding his arm up when defending a Gonzalo Higuain cross, as Ronaldo kept his cool to convert a last-minute penalty.
