The Portuguese superstar lined up for Juve knowing a win would take them third in the table and one point off top.
Dejan Kulusevski netted against his old side to take the lead, before Ronaldo stole all the headlines with his header.
Alvaro Morata whipped in a fierce cross which saw Ronaldo take flight and head past Luigi Sepe.

The airtime he manages to achieve would be remarkable for any forward, never mind one who is 35-years-old.
Ronaldo scored a second later in the game and Morata got on the score sheet to seal a convincing victory of Andrea Pirlo's men.
But the star of the show was Ronaldo and fans are still in awe at the five-time Ballon d'Or winners leap.
It's not fluke he's just a goalscoring machine. That's how high he jumps to connect with these headers. That's Cristiano Ronaldo for you. pic.twitter.com/GpQEJYeEnM- Sqiniseko (@SQ_Myeza_) December 19, 2020

Ronaldo had missed a penalty during Wednesday's 1-1 draw with Atalanta and following the game, Pirlo said he wanted to make up for it.
"Ronaldo was angry for having missed the penalty, but we had a few days to think about it and he showed how much he cares about scoring goals, even better if on play," the Italian told Juventus' official website.
"We weren't happy with Wednesday's result, but the performance was good. We had to get back the points we lost with Atalanta and we did it in the best way."
