To all zero of you that thought Andrea Pirlo had lost his world-class touch, it appears you are sorely mistaken. 

Pirlo proved as much today, as the 35-year-old Italian legend added yet another long-range curling goal to his collection with this strike to give Juventus the lead against Atalanta. 

​Doesn't look like there was a whole lot Atalanta goalkeeper Marco Sportielo could do about that one, an assertation confirmed by this particular camera angle on the replay: 

The goal gave Juventus a 2-1 lead, which it would hold until the end. The win makes it 15 games unbeaten in Serie A for Juventus, which last suffered a league loss all the way back on October 29th (1-0 vs. Genoa). The three-time defending champions currently lead Serie A by 10 points over AS Roma, though Roma will have a chance to cut that lead to seven on Sunday against Hellas Verona.
