Despite being a man down, the Old Lady were awarded a penalty on the stroke of halftime when Joao Cancelo was brought down by Dani Parejo.
With Ronaldo off the pitch, Miralem Pjanic took responsibility and calmly slotted home to put the Serie A champions 1-0 up before the break.
Shortly after the break, Juventus were a awarded a second penalty when Leonardo Bonucci was brought down in the box. Pjanic stepped up once again and made no mistake from the spot.
With time running out for the LaLiga side, Kevin Gameiro and Santi Mina were introduced in the 70th minute as they looked to get back in the game.
Valencia threw numbers forward in search of an equaliser, and they were awarded a penalty late on but Parejo saw his spot-kick saved by Wojciech Szczęsny as Juve ran out 2-0 winners on the night.
