Kevin Prince Boateng shocked over Ronaldo's red card in Champions League

Kevin Prince Boateng shocked over Ronaldo's red card in Champions League

If UEFA decide to extend his ban to more than one game he will then also miss a return to former club Manchester United and could even miss the return game in Turin.

Ronaldo was sent off on his Champions League debut for Juventus after he appeared to have grabbed Valencia defender Jeison Murillo's hair, as they tangled off the ball midway through the first half.

Ronaldo was shown a straight red card and handed three-match ban for an apparent headbutt on Portsmouth midfielder Richard Hughes.

Ronaldo is likely to face a ban, despite replays clearly showing that he didn't do anything to the Valencia defender, which could see him ruled out of the Old Lady's next European clash against Young Boys. He left the field having scored both goals. I'm positive that we have now turn into stronger, not exclusively due to Ronaldo.

Florentino Perez has revealed Real Madrid did not want to sell Cristiano Ronaldo but had to "open the door" for his departure after the player asked to leave.

"The only thing I can say is that VAR could have helped the referee make the right decision", said Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri, lamenting the lack of video technology in UEFA tournaments. In Ceballos, there is a player who signed a year ago and probably we haven't seen much about him.

In the second match of group B, Tottenham bottled a 1-0 lead after 85 minutes and ended up losing by 2-1 after the final whistle.

Something of the sort was on clear display on Wednesday, when Juventus faced off against Valencia in the Champions League.

Ronaldo joined Juventus from Real Madrid for a whopping A$162m and was making his debut in the competition for his new club.

"I just heard he said it was because of hair pulling".

Former English Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg, and Juventus' Leonardo Bonucci and Pjanic also came to Ronaldo's defence. "It seemed like Murillo put his hands on him first".
