Juventus came from behind to beat Bologna 3-1 on Saturday, thanks to an inspirational performance from substitute Douglas Costa.
Simone Verdi's penalty gave Bologna a surprise half-time lead and Juventus turned the match around with Douglas Costa shredding the defence amid an own goal from Sebastian De Maio and strikes from Sami Khedira and Paulo Dybala.
Juventus moved seven points clear of second-placed Napoli and, with two rounds remaining, can secure the title on Sunday if Maurizio Sarri's side loses at home to Torino.
AC Milan moved back into Serie A's top six with a 4-1 win at San Siro that relegated Hellas Verona.
The Rossoneri, aiming to leapfrog Atalanta and get back among the Europa League places, took the lead in the 11th minute when Hakan Calhanoglu converted a cutback from Suso.
Milan doubled their lead in the 32nd minute when Patrick Cutrone latched onto a pass from Giacomo Bonaventura and drilled the ball into the bottom corner.
It was 3-0 early in the second half when, in the 48th minute, Ignazio Abate stabbed home from 10 yards out after a break down the right from Suso.
In the 85th minute, Lee Seung-woo scored a late consolation for Verona but Milan restored their three-goal advantage when Fabio Borini steered home an angled drive.
