|Juve closed the gap on table-topping Inter with a vital win at home to title-challenger Fiorentina with two late goals from attacking duo Mandzukic and Dybala.
Juventus came from behind to beat Fiorentina 3-1 in Turin on Sunday, as Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala both scored in the final 10 minutes.
Second-placed Fiorentina lost ground to Serie A leader Inter in the defeat despite going ahead within the opening three minutes.
Josep Ilicic had La Viola in front early on in the encounter, converting a spot-kick from 12-yards after Federico Bernardeschi was brought down in the box by Juve defender Giorgio Chiellini.
But Massimiliano Allegri’s men hit back immediately, as former Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado headed in at the back post after meeting Patrice Evra’s deep left-wing cross.
With 80 minutes on the clock Mario Mandzukic won the game, crashing in a loose ball following Paulo Dybala's rebounded effort, before the former Palermo forward sealed a vital victory in the dying minute.
