Cristiano Ronaldo red card

Cristiano Ronaldo red card

The game turned in its head in the 30th minute when Ronaldo was shown a straight in an off-the-ball incident with Murillo.

Valencia coach Marcelino Garcia consoles Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo after the latter was sent off.

The former Inter Milan defender went down, and Ronaldo reacted angrily - appearing to grab his hair, sparking a mini-brawl.

Little matter, as the decision stood and Ronaldo walked back to the dressing room with tears in his eyes, visibly shaken.

It was Ronaldo's first red card in 154 Champions League games, and the decision means he could miss a return to Old Trafford when Juventus play Manchester United next month if he gets at least a two-match ban.

Valencia dominated possession after that but Juventus's well-drilled defence held firm until stoppage time when Brych awarded the third penalty of the game.

Captain Paul Pogba produced an outstanding performance garnished by two goals to help Manchester United to a resounding 3-0 win at Swiss debutants Young Boys Bern. It is the competition that Ronaldo describes as "my home", the one that he was signed to win.

However, his consolation will be that Juventus was cruising to a crushing victory against the Spanish team, despite being reduced to 10 men.

Barely six minutes after after the resumption of the second half, Pjanic doubled his side via penalty after Jeison Murillo was booked for pushing Leonardo Bonucci in the danger zone.

Murillo hit the deck after a collision with Ronaldo and it remains unknown whether it was the initial clash or Ronaldo's reaction that resulted in the reigning Ballon d'Or holder's red card.

Parejo stepped up but Wojciech Szczesny saved his spot-kick to sum up the Spanish side's frustrating evening.
