Giorgio Chiellini got the opener for Juventus after 90 seconds, but admits “it is truly wonderful to win like this at the last moment.”
The Bianconeri snatched a 2-1 victory with the last kick of the game to beat Lazio, catching them and Napoli in second place.
“We are having a great season. This evening was a crucial victory, as it allowed us to go joint second,” Chiellini told Sky Sport Italia.
“Tonight we struggled against an excellent team, but overall deserved all three points.
“I have to say, it is truly wonderful to win like this at the last moment.”
Milan are now six points clear of that trio at the top of the table.
“For the moment the Rossoneri are having a season all of their own, but we must carry on along our path and see where we end up.”
