Chiellini reaches Serie A milestone in Juventus clash against Atalanta

The defender has been a steady star for the Bianconeri and reached his third century of Serie A matches for the club in Friday's draw

Giorgio Chiellini reached another milestone with Juventus on Friday, playing in his 300th Serie A match for the club. 

The defender has been an ever-present force at the back for the Bianconeri over the course of 11 top-flight seasons and has been part of five title-winning sides.

Chiellini has also racked up the personal honors having been named Serie A's best defender three years running from 2008 through 2011. 

This year could see even more additions to the trophy case with Juventus a strong favorite to win Serie A and facing a Champions League semi-final against Monaco. 

Friday's 2-2 draw with Atalanta saw Juve push their lead atop Serie A to nine points over Roma, who face Lazio in a derby match Sunday.
