Cristiano Ronaldo escapes extended ban for red card against Valencia

Can reacts to Ronaldo's red card We are not women

The Juventus superstar will receive only a one-game UEFA Champions League ban for the red card he received Wednesday in his team's win over Valencia, according to The Guardian's Jamie Jackson.

"Cristiano Ronaldo was very unfortunate to be sent off on his Champions League debut for Juventus", he said.

Ronaldo was sent off for putting his hand on Valencia defender Jeison Murillo's head with Can saying afterwards: "That's meant to be a red card?"

The referee was greeted by no fewer than three members of Juventus' board of directors at the midway point of the Italian side's 2-0 Champions League victory over Valencia this week.

But it was Ronaldo's stupidity and petulance in attempting to grab Murillo by the hair which gave German referee Felix Brych the grounds to brandish the first Champions League red card of the player's career. An increase would also rule him out of a return to Old Trafford to face former club Manchester United.

Blaise Matuidi defended Juve teammate Ronaldo and demanded the red card be rescinded.

"The referee had his back to the incident".

He is set to serve an automatic one-match suspension which will rule him out of the home game against Young Boys on October 2.

UEFA is unlikely to throw the book at Cristiano Ronaldo.

A tearful Ronaldo left the pitch in disbelief but Allegri maintains he would have avoided a red card if UEFA had opted to approve the use of VAR for Europe's premier club tournament. "It was very harsh, I think if you saw the replays, you could see it's an incomprehensible decision", Matuidi said.
