Juventus equalized in the second after being awarded a penalty for a hand ball by Marten de Roon as Ronaldo fired home his 27th of the season in the 55th minute.

Atlanta got back in front for the second time as Ukrainian star Malinovsky went for power in front of the 18-yard box giving Wojciech Szczesny no chance to make it 2-1.

Two minutes from time, Juventus won their second penalty in the match as Luis Muriel handled the ball inside the penalty area as referee Piero Giacomelli pointed to the spot.

Ronaldo stepped up and converted the resulting spot-kick to earn his side a 2-2 draw and record his 11th straight penalty in Serie A.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Zlatan Ibrahimovic's body language to Cristiano Ronaldo before taking his spot-kick against Juventus was priceless.

AC Milan were already two-goals down before the referee awarded a penalty to the Rossoneri after Leonardo Bonucci handled the ball in the box after the hour mark.

And the Swedish striker made no mistake as he sent Wojciech Szczesny the wrong way and put his side back into the game despite Ronaldo's antics in the background.
