Cristiano Ronaldo had to sit out of Juventus’ games, including the UEFA Champions League contest against Barcelona, due to coronavirus. CR7 had earlier tested positive twice for COVID-19 virus. The 35-year-old, however, recovered and joined Juventus squad for game against Spezia in the Italian league. And on his return, Ronaldo didn’t disappoint and scored twice as Juventus defeated Spezia 4-1. Ronaldo didn’t feature in the starting XI and was brought in as a substitute in the 56th minute.
In the 59th minute, Ronaldo netted a goal to put Juventus 2-1 up. And then in the 76th minute, he converted a penalty to make it 4-1 for Bianconeri. Following the game, Ronaldo took to Twitter and wrote, "Happy to be back and help the team with two goals! Well done team. Always Fino Alla Fine.”
