Cristiano Ronaldo likely to get 1-game ban face Manchester United

He will find out next week whether his one-match ban is extended.

Ronaldo was shown a straight red card after appearing to raise his hand to Murillo, the defender tumbling to the ground and reacting to the Portugal global pulling at his hair.

A ten-men Juventus, however, defeated their Spanish opponents as Miralem Pjanic succesfully converted two spot kicks, eventually leading the Bianconeri to a 2-0 victory.

33-year-old Portuguese footballer received his first red card in the UEFA Champions League.

Reacting emotionally to the referee's decision, Ronaldo fell on the ground in disbelief and left the pitch with teary eyes and frustration.

Juventus' Emre Can has apologised for comments about Cristiano Ronaldo's sending off at Valencia, saying there was no intention to "degrade women". He won the first of his five Champions League titles while with United in 2008.

UEFA rules state that a player who is sent off is suspended for the next match in the competition but if the episode is deemed a "serious offence", he could miss more games.

Firmino strikes late to give Liverpool victory
The summer signing from Stoke reiterated his point that the better team eventually won out. We were in trouble in the first half, but we showed character and scored.

Ronaldo's case will be heard by UEFA's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on September 27. Juventus would also be allowed to appeal.

But he later said: "Everyone who knows me knows about my respect for women".

"VAR would've helped the referee in this decision", said the Juventus coach.

Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi urged UEFA to show leniency.

"So I hope afterwards UEFA will watch the replays and that we can have something positive for him because he does not deserve it". "And we are all sad for him".

Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci added: "Ronaldo was quite angry, unfortunately the referee did not see the situation very well".
