Cristiano Ronaldo ban: How many Champions League matches will Juventus star miss after red card? – football news

Cristiano Ronaldo stole all of the headlines on the second night of the 2018-19 Champions League group stage, as he was sent off during Juventus’ 2-0 win over Valencia.

The Portugal international was shown his very first red card in Europe’s premier club competition after he appeared to pull the hair of defender Jeison Murillo.

Ronaldo was astonished at the decision to the point that he was even reduced to tears as his first return to Spain since his departure from Real Madrid turned sour.

Indeed, he had to be helped from the turf after collapsing upon seeing the card, and took a number of minutes to leave the pitch.

UEFA assess cases on an individual basis, though they do institute an automatic one-match suspension for a straight red dismissal.

So how long will Ronaldo be banned for and what game – or games – will he miss?


What did Ronaldo do to get sent off?


After running into the box, Ronaldo and Murillo clashed, the defender claiming he was kicked by the 33-year-old.

Ronaldo reacted to that, raising his arm in protest, before appearing to scratch Murillo’s head with his hand.

Murillo then squared up to the forward, and players from both teams were forced to intervene.

Referee Felix Brych consulted the official behind the goal, and a decision was taken to send Ronaldo off, leaving him in tears.

You can watch the incident in the videos above.


Will Ronaldo miss Juventus’ game against Man Utd?


Cristiano Ronaldo Juventus

A fairytale return to Old Trafford remains on the cards on October 23 after UEFA confirmed that Ronaldo will only be banned for one Champions League game.

That means the only game he is certain to miss is Juve’s next encounter, against Young Boys, on October 2 in Turin.

Ronaldo was unable appeal his ban, but faces an anxious wait to see if that suspension will be extended by UEFA.

Game Ronaldo will miss

Date Opponent Venue
Oct 2 Young Boys Allianz Stadium, Turin

There was a possibility that it might have been extended to two games, meaning he would have had to sit out the Old Trafford clash.

Former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg believes Ronaldo’s red card was harsh – he claims he would have shown both Murillo and the Portuguese a yellow, and awarded Valencia a free-kick – and thinks a one-match ban will suffice.

Writing in the Daily Mail, he said: “The contact looked very slight and I cannot see how the additional assistant, standing some 20 yards away, could deem it violent conduct.

“If I had been officiating this game, I would have given Valencia a free-kick and shown a yellow card to each player. Ronaldo will serve a one-match ban but anything more would be harsh.”


Reaction to Ronaldo’s red card vs Valencia


Ronaldo’s sending off sent social media into a frenzy, with Twitter users across the globe either mocking the crying superstar or criticising the referee.

Indeed, one user claimed that the decision was “one of the most ridiculous sendings off ever”.

Leonardo Bonucci indicated that his team-mate was left “angry” at the decision, while Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri believes VAR would have saved the star .

Miralem Pjanic went one step further, despite scoring the two penalties that won Juve the game, and insisted that the red card was “absurd”.

“Football is a strange game. We could have been 4-0 up after the opening period, then came that absurd sending off,” Pjanic said, via the club’s website.

And Emre Can took a slightly different tact , claiming that “we’re not women”!

“That’s supposed to be a red!?” he exclaimed when shown footage of the action by DAZN .

“I just heard that he said it was because of hair pulling. We’re not women, we’re playing football.

“If you’re giving that as a red card, you can be sent off for any foul. One hundred per cent, that is not a red card.”

Ronaldo red card ‘absurd’, says Pjanic – football news

Miralem Pjanic labelled Cristiano Ronaldo’s red card “absurd” after the Juventus star was sent off in his team’s Champions League win over Valencia.

Ronaldo was dismissed before the half-hour mark at the Mestalla on Wednesday after a coming together with defender Jeison Murillo.

In his first European appearance for the Serie A giants, Ronaldo saw red, but Pjanic netted two penalties – and Dani Parejo missed one for Valencia – to see Juve to their win.

The Bosnia-Herzegovina midfielder felt his side were dominant early and he was shocked by Ronaldo’s red card.

“Football is a strange game. We could have been 4-0 up after the opening period, then came that absurd sending off,” Pjanic said, via the club’s website.

“It was like the Lyon game [in 2016]. We dug deep and found the spirit we needed to take us all the way to the final.

“That’s what we need to do again.”

Pjanic isn’t the only one to speak out regarding Ronaldo’s dismissal, as fellow Juventus star Leonardo Bonucci said the Portuguese star was left “angry” by his dismissal while the former Real Madrid winger’s sister came out in his defense as well.

Valencia boss Marcelino also revealed that a tearful Ronaldo insisted he did nothing wrong.

Ronaldo will be suspended for Juventus’ next Champions League match against Young Boys following Wednesday’s dismissal.

Juve and Manchester United, who cruised past Young Boys, are both on three points in Group H.

‘Ronaldo red one of the most ridiculous sendings off ever’ – Shock as CR7 sent off on Juventus Champions League debut – football news

Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off on his Champions League debut for Juventus on Wednesday in what can only be termed a questionable decision. 

Having taken issue with a Valencia defender, the former Real Madrid and Manchester United started reached down and touched Jeison Murillo on the head, urging the defender back to his feet after a percieved dive. 

The straight red means that, barring an overturn of the mandatory bad, Ronaldo will miss out on both group-stage clashes with Manchester United and left the 33-year-old in tears. 

Needless to say, the football world was quick to react, with some poking fun at Ronaldo while others were understandably upset with the call.

‘I was a little tense’ – Ronaldo relieved to get off the mark for Juventus – football news

Cristiano Ronaldo thanked his Juventus team-mates for helping him through a dry spell after he scored both goals in a 2-1 victory over Sassuolo.

The 33-year-old failed to find the net in his first three Serie A matches following a €112million transfer from Real Madrid in July before finally breaking his duck on Sunday.

He scored from close range after 50 minutes to break the deadlock and then followed up with a second 15 minutes later, angling in a drive to secure the points for Massimiliano Allegri’s men.

Ronaldo praised the way Juventus broke down a stubborn visiting defence and admitted that his failure to find the net had been starting to play on his mind.

“I’m very happy, we started well,” he told Mediaset.

“Sassuolo defend well, but we put in an intense performance and deserved to win.

“I really wanted to score these first goals and I’m happy to have found the net.

“This is football. The important thing is that the team wins. Obviously, I was a little tense with all the talk of Real Madrid and not scoring, but I thank my team-mates for supporting me throughout.

“I knew that I was working well and it was only a matter of time. I am adapting well to Italian football.”

Juventus travel to Valencia for their opening Champions League fixture on Wednesday and Ronaldo is looking forward to playing again in a competition he has won three times in the last three years with Madrid.

Manchester United and Young Boys are also in Group H and Ronaldo acknowledged that a tough task lies ahead for Juventus, who reached the quarter-finals last season.

“The Champions League is my favourite tournament,” he said.

“It’s a very difficult group, we know that we can do well and Juve must focus on being the best.”
