Soccer-Ronaldo penalties salvage 2-2 draw for Juve against Atalanta

TURIN, Italy, July 11 (Reuters) - Cristiano Ronaldo converted two penalties, both awarded for handball and the second in the last minute, as Serie A leaders Juventus twice hit back to draw 2-2 with Atalanta to move closer to a ninth successive Serie A title on Saturday.

The win took Juventus eight points clear of second-placed Lazio with six matches to play, with Atalanta a further point behind in third.

Duvan Zapata gave Atlanta the lead in the 16th minute and Ronaldo equalised 10 minutes after the break after the ball struck Marten De Roon’s elbow.

Ruslan Malinovskyi then fired Atalanta back in front in the 81st minute before Ronaldo struck again, this time after Luis Muriel handled, to deny Atalanta a 10th successive league win. (Writing by Brian Homewood Editing by Toby Davis)
