End of 2nd Half
But now it is - Juventus have beaten Udinese thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo's late brace! The Old Lady were dreadful until the last 10 minutes, and the victory moves them back up to third.
If Juventus clinch a place in the Champions League next season they will look back on this victory where Ronaldo once again proved the hero. But this one isn't over yet...
FIVE minutes to be added on here! What drama at Stadio Friuli.
GOAL! Udinese 1-2 Juventus (Cristiano Ronaldo): Oh my, Ronaldo has surely won it for Juventus to save Pirlo's job! The substitute Rabiot delivers a cross to the back psot and Ronaldo heads it past Scuffet. What a moment for the Old Lady!
Whether a draw is enough to save Pirlo's job remains to be seen. Juventus are finally playing with intensity, but where was it for 82 minutes?
Now they have five minutes to find a winner and Juventus have the momentum.
GOAL! Udinese 1-1 Juventus (Cristiano Ronaldo, pen): An excellent penalty from Ronaldo as he drills it hard and low past Simone Scuffet. How important could this goal be in Juventus' season?!
Penalty to Juventus! Ronaldo's free-kick strikes the raised arm of De Paul and there can be no argument from Udinese as the referee points to the spot. A lifeline for the visitors!
Rodrigo De Paul
A really poor decision from Cuadrado as he tries to cut onto his left foot instead of shooting. All is not quite lost, however, as the full-back then wins a soft free-kick in a dangerous central area in Ronaldo territory.
There are still just over 10 minutes to play, but as it stands, Juventus will stay fifth in the table.
Udinese win a corner, Bonifazy tries an overhead kick but doesn't get the connection he would have wanted and Okaka can't quite reach the loose ball.
Pirlo's body language says it all as Ronaldo runs into trouble. It's looking increasingly unlikely that either of them will be at Juventus next season.
Udinese sub: Arslan makes way for Forestieri.
The clock is ticking and Juventus have 20 minutes left to turn this one around. It's a huge game in their season, but you wouldn't believe so judging by this ponderous performance.
Close! Stryger-Larsen almost puts daylight between the sides but doesn't get enough bend in his shot from the edge of the penalty area.
Juve sub: Morata, who has been struggling with a calf problem of late, replaces Dybala with less than 25 minutes to make a difference.
This is a really poor game, it has to be said. Juventus are showing no fight whatsoever and with their manager's job on the line here, Pirlo must be ready to tear his hair out.
Another nervous moment in the Juventus penalty area as they struggle to clear their lines from a corner. Pereyra then shoots wide.
Juve sub: Kulusevski comes on for the disappointing Bernadeschi.
Shot from Ronaldo! He has been virtually a spectator today but the 36-year-old finally finds the space to cause trouble. However, his shot is straight down the throat of Scuffet, who saves easily.
