Cristiano Ronaldo’s red card was deemed too harsh and the striker will only serve a match ban making him eligible to face Man utd

Cristiano Ronaldo endured a tragic champions league debut match against Valencia which saw the Portuguese striker receive his marching orders just 29 minutes into the game for allegedly pulling Murillo’s hair.

Despite receiving a red card Juventus made it through the night with Pjanic dispatching two penalties to earn the old lady’s all three points in Spain.

According to reports however, Cristiano Ronaldo will only be serving a match ban which means the striker will only be missing the game against the young boys of Switzerland.

The striker is now expected to be feature in both legs of the champions league fixture against boyhood club Manchester United.

Ronaldo will be ruled out of Juve’s second Group H match, at home to Young Boys, and Uefa can extend the sanction if it deems the offence serious. It is understood, though, that the former United player will escape this. – Guardian
