Gonzalo Higuain scored twice as Juventus came from behind to beat Atalanta 3-1 in Italian Serie A on Saturday.

Atalanta dominated the match but Wojciech Szczesny’s saves and defenders, Mattia De Sciglio and Matthijs de Ligt kept them at bay.

Finally, Atalanta’s effort paid off as Robin Gosens scored the lead in a penalty 17 minutes after the second half.

However, Gonzalo Higuain came through for Juve as he scored twice and opened the way for Paulo Dybala to net the third goal.

There was controversy in Higuain’s second goal with his teammate Juan Cuadrado’s handball.

Atalanta called for VAR but the referee deemed it unnecessary to the team’s Fury.

Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo was absent in the match to recover from injury ahead of Champions League match on Tuesday.

Atalanta haven’t beaten Juventus since 2001. Juve’s win on Saturday puts them four points ahead of Inter Milan who are second in Serie A.
