Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice on his return after two weeks out with COVID-19 as Juventus beat Spezia in the Serie A.

The 35-year-old, who missed four games, slotted in to make it 2-1 three minutes after coming on in the second half

His second was a cheeky Panenka penalty after Adrien Rabiot’s cool finish had given Juventus a two-goal advantage.

Alvaro Morata gave the visitors the lead with a low angled strike before Tommaso Pobega equalised for Spezia.

The Turin club move up to second in the table with 12 points, four behind leaders AC Milan.

Ronaldo, who tested positive on October 13, expressed his frustration on social media after failing to produce a negative result on the eve of his side’s Champions League match against Barcelona on Wednesday.

After finally being cleared to play on Friday, the former Real Madrid forward was named as a substitute by coach Andrea Pirlo.
