Cristiano Ronaldo Scores Brilliant Brace On His Juventus Return
Cristiano Ronaldo wasted no time in making an impact on his Juventus return as he scored three minutes after coming on against Spezia.
Ronaldo has been unavailable for Juventus’ last four games due to a positive coronavirus result.
But he returned in spectacular style as he made an instant impact for his team on Sunday.
Ronaldo was named as a substitute for his side’s Serie A clash, but he entered the fray in the 56th minute and scored minutes after entering the pitch.
With the score 1-1, he latched onto a pass from Alvaro Morata and rounded the keeper before slotting the ball in the back of the net.
Ronaldo celebrated his goal in trademark fashion – belting out “Siiiii” inside the empty Stadio Alberto Picco.
Adrien Rabiot scored eight minutes after Ronaldo’s goal to make it 3-1 following Morata’s opener.
The Portuguese superstar then added his second when he converted an outrageous penalty in the 76th minute.
The defending Italian champions move to second in the league with 12 points on the board behind leaders AC Milan.
