Cristiano Ronaldo continued his scoring streak with another two goals as Juventus won 2-0 against Cagliari to move to second in Serie A.
Ronaldo has now scored eight goals in his past five matches and joined Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the top of the league scorers' chart.
Juventus are a point behind league leaders AC Milan, who visit Napoli on Sunday.
Third-place Sassuolo are a point further back before they face Hellas Verona.
Atalanta and Lazio are among four clubs on 14 points, three fewer than Milan.
Lazio beat Crotone 2-0 earlier on Saturday in a game played on a waterlogged pitch while Atalanta remained sixth after they were held to a goalless draw at Spezia.
Centre back Matthijs de Ligt played his first game of the season for Juventus after surgery on his shoulder and Alex Sandro came on late after also recovering from injury.
The Bianconeri made their early pressure count seven minutes before the interval when Alvaro Morata found Ronaldo, who cut in from the left and fired into the far bottom corner.
Ronaldo doubled his tally four minutes later after a corner was flicked on to him by Merih Demiral.
"I am very happy because after the (international) break it is always difficult," Colombian Juan Cuadrado said after captaining Juve with Giorgio Chiellini sidelined.
"We showed that if we press high it is easier to play the ball, as the coach (Andrea Pirlo) wants us to do."
Ciro Immobile marked his recovery from coronavirus with a goal to send Lazio on their way to victory at last-placed Crotone, who have just two points from eight games.
European Golden Boot winner from last season Immobile nodded home a Marco Parolo cross on 21 minutes before Joaquin Correa scored the second for seventh-place Lazio in the 58th.
"Ciro was very clever, he is a leader and scored a great goal. Today it was tough and we won against a very good team," Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi said.
Footballers and game officials this weekend are wearing a red mark on a cheek as a sign of support for the international day for the elimination of violence against women, which the United Nations will observe on Wednesday.
