Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says his side should have done better in the final stages of their 2-0 win against Atalanta.
The Bianconeri registered a much-needed win as they moved up to 12th in the table.
They will face Sassuolo away from home on Wednesday.
"The boys have put in a strong display, we've kept another clean sheet and created plenty of goalscoring opportunities while playing some very good football at times," Allegri said.
"My only criticism would be that towards the end, when they were down to ten men, we should have kept possession ticking over better and save energy.
"We've come on a lot physically. The boys are working well as a unit and if you do that you can cause the opposition problems and keep clean sheets."
