The Old Lady looked set to lose ground on their title rivals as Lazio battled hard at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday evening.
However, with just four minutes left in the capital - Juve lynch-pin Pavel Nedved struck with what could prove a crucial effort.
With five games remaining in Italy - only one goal now separates the top two.
Sampdoria moved back into fourth place thanks to a 2-1 victory over Roma at The Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
Samp saw Udinese move back ahead of them in the race for the final UEFA Champions League spot on Saturday after The Bianconeri's victory at Siena, but they made no mistake with a crucial victory of their own over Roma.
Max Tonetto put Sampdoria ahead after 33 minutes and Francesco Flachi's (pictured) penalty 15 minutes from time sealed their success.
Vincenzo Montella scored a penalty in injury time, but it was too little too late for Roma who now sit just five points off the relegation zone.
Palermo saw their hopes of a Champions League place suffer a huge blow after defeat at bottom of the table Atalanta.
Luigi Sala pounced in the final minute to give Atalanta the victory which bolsters their hopes of survival as they are now within four points off fifth from bottom Chievo - who drew 1-1 with Cagliari.
Sergio Pellissier gave Chievo the lead in the first half, but Massimo Gobbi (74) secured a share of the spoils for the Sardinians.
Messina came from behind to inflict only a second defeat of the season on Internazionale at The Giovanni Celeste.
Inter went ahead just after the interval through Argentine star Julio Cruz, but Arturo Di Napoli levelled on the hour before Pereira Rafael fired home a last-gasp winner.
Livorno's bid for a possible Uefa Cup place continued thanks to a 1-0 win over Lecce, with Cristiano Lucarelli's last minute goal deciding the contest.
Relegation threatened Brescia grabbed a real life-line with their 2-0 win over Reggina.
Second half efforts from Luigi Di Biagio (47) and Marius Stankevicius (77) gave Brescia three crucial points which means they are now third from bottom - but only goal difference keeps them in the relegation zone.
