Juve's Ronaldo cries after red card at Valencia encounter

Juve's Ronaldo cries after red card at Valencia encounter

Cristiano Ronaldo arguably is the best player in UEFA Champions League history and led Real Madrid to the last three titles in this competition.

The game turned in its head in the 30th minute when Ronaldo was shown a straight in an off-the-ball incident with Murillo.

Because it was a straight red card, it would mean that Ronaldo will miss Juventus' upcoming clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Italian giants still managed to get off to a winning start to their 2018/19 European campaing despite Ronaldo's dismissal, though they face a nervous wait over how long their new summer signing will be banned for.

A first red card in La Liga came in Ronaldo's debut season for two petulant late bookings coming after he had missed a penalty and also scored Los Blancos' fourth goal in a 4-2 win.

Valencia were unable to make their extra man count and to compound their frustration, Daniel Parejo saw a stoppage time penalty saved by Juventus keeper, Wojciech Szczesny.

"It was a great performance from Daniel", said Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp after their opening Group C game. I know we are quite good, and -respecting them without getting afraid of them - but respecting them we have to.

Captain Paul Pogba produced an outstanding performance garnished by two goals to help Manchester United to a resounding 3-0 win at Swiss debutants Young Boys.

Bayern Munich beat Benfica 2-0.

City earned themselves a lifeline through Bernardo Silva, who produced a smart finish after a superb jinking run from substitute Leroy Sane.

Meanwhile, defending champions Real Madrid thrashed Roma 3-0 in their first group match.

Valencia is back in the Champions League for the first time since 2015-16.

After drawing three blanks in the Italian top flight the ex-Real Madrid man finally broke his duck last weekend, scoring twice to mastermind a 2-1 win over Sassuolo that keeps the Bianconeri at the Serie A summit with a flawless record so far.
