Cristiano Ronaldo wins the game for Juventus

Juventus are back on winning ways after beating Spezia by 4-1 this Sunday afternoon, thanks to goals from Morata, Ronaldo and Rabiot. The Portuguese superstar scored a brace in his much awaited return, after having replaced Paulo Dybala in the 56th minute of the game.

There was a lot of expectation to see Cristiano Ronaldo stepping onto the pitch after having been diagnosed with COVID-19 nearly 20 days ago and the Portuguese forward didn't let us down and added 2 more goals to his tally. Juventus made easy work of Spezia in Cesena, beating the home side by 4-1 and closing in on AC Milan leadership, who had also won their weekend fixture against Udinese. The Vecchia Signora went into half-time level, but Pirlo decided to bring on Ronaldo with roughly 30 minutes left to be played in the second half and the former Real Madrid star showed us how hungry he was for doing what he does best, the same way a professional gambler enters a casino with his confidence sky high.

Bouncing back from a loss...

Juventus were looking to bounce back from their mid-week loss against Barcelona for the UEFA Champions League and their game against Spezia was the perfect opportunity to redeem themselves by grabbing the 3 points and delivering a good performance. Even though we all know the opponent today wasn't exactly a top contender for the Serie A title, it was never going to be an easy game for the Italian champions, especially with Ronaldo still sitting on the bench.

The first goal of the afternoon came on still before the first quarter of an hour, when the American midfielder, Weston McKennie, showed no selfishness at all in front of goal and assisted Álvaro Morata for an easy empty net goal, allowing the Spanish forward to score his second league goal this season. The 28-year old striker would still score a second goal in the first half, but just like in most of his previous appearances for the Bianconeri, he ended up getting caught in the opponent's offside trap and saw the referee ruling it out.

Nevertheless, the hosts didn't drop their arms down after the opener and immediately started chasing the goal, looking to level things up before the half-time break. Eventually, they would find a way to break Juventus and beat Buffon, raising the alarms on the Vecchia Signora's bench. Tommaso Pobega was the goalscorer, but a last-second deflection on Nzola was crucial to leave Buffon helpless in goal. 1-1 on the scoreboard and both teams walked away to the dressing rooms...

The king is back!

The key moment in today's game was most likely when Andrea Pirlo decided to make the first change in his team. With the game level at 1-1 and Cristiano Ronaldo sitting next to him on the bench, the 41-year old manager decided not to wait any longer and took Dybala to give CR7 some playing minutes...

As soon as Ronaldo stepped on the pitch, everyone realized it was going to be a different game. It only took the Portuguese forward 3 minutes to make his presence felt, as a great pass from Álvaro Morata let him in a 1-on-1 situation against Spezia's goalkeeper and Ronaldo, once again, showed no mercy when given a scoring opportunity. The 35-year old striker still dribbled the goalkeeper before hitting the back of the net and was naturally thrilled for scoring a very important goal for his team after such a long home confinement due the Corona virus.

Not only Ronaldo seems to have had an immediate impact with his goal, but he also motivated his teammates around him to step up their games. The 3-1 was scored in the 67th minute when a brilliant play from Adrien Rabiot ended up with the French player grabbing his first goal of the season. Just like Ronaldo, he had started the game on the bench and only needed a few minutes on the pitch to write his name on the scoresheet.

The last goal of the game was delivered again by Cristiano Ronaldo, but this time the former Manchester United number 7 decided to innovate and surprised everyone with a panenka penalty, making the final score 4-1 in favor of the Bianconeri. This was also Ronaldo's 5th goal in the Serie A this season.
