Android phone's Power button is gone, how to boot now in Recovery mode

E|e<tr0|!0n

Broken In
My Moto G4+ 's Power button just broke off and is lost.
I intend to boot the phone into recovery mode for rooting purposes, but it seems impossible as you've to hold the power button + volume buttons to do so.
As of now I am able to revive the screen by swiping on the fingerprint reader, but I have to indulge in risky things like poking toothpicks into the power button's slot to switch it on/off.
Is there any way I can do it without any hassle?

You can do that by using ADB shell on a PC.

You could've just installed any Quick reboot apps, to boot into recovery with a single touch.
