Juventus beat Spezi 3-2 on Wednesday to earn their first league victory after five matches since Christian Ronaldo departure.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side moved up to 12th position from bottom of the Serie A table on five points following the hard earned win which at one point looked to be heading for an embarrassing defeat.
Emmanuel Gyasi and Janis Antiste goals put Spezia ahead barely after the break following Moise Kean’s 28th-minute opening goal.
However, Federico Chiesa came up from bench to bring Juventus on a par in second half with his first league goal of the season before Matthijs de Ligt scored winning goal when the ball fell kindly to him from a Paulo Dybala corner.
Spezia stepped up their game to equalize in the last minutes of the game when Giulio Maggiore launched volley toward the net but old ladies keeper Wojciech Szczesny push the ball away.
Juve are eight points behind both Milan teams who are dragging first place on Serie A table.
