UEFA to review Cristiano Ronaldo’s red card on September 27

Ronaldo was dismissed on his Champions League debut for Juve after a clash with Jeison Murillo was spotted by the assistant referee and communicated to German referee Felix Brych, who drew a red card from his top pocket.

Juventus' Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo (L) cries next to Juventus' Italian midfielder Federico Bernardeschi after receiving a red card during the UEFA Champions League group H football match between Valencia CF and Juventus FC at the Mestalla stadium in Valencia on September 19, 2018.

Juve beat Valencia 2-0 in Spain but the former Real Madrid superstar was shown a straight red card in the 29th minute for an off-the-ball incident with Jeison Murillo. He has won the Ballon d'Or five times, the joint most with Lionel Messi.

The Juventus star collapsed dramatically on the pitch after being sent off in his Champions League debut for his new club on Thursday.

He is set to serve an automatic one-match suspension, which will rule him out of the home game against Young Boys on October 2.

AFP Sport understands, however, that an extension to the one-match ban is unlikely.

"I'll only say that in this sort of occasion VAR would help, It's disappointing because now we'll lose him for a few games and instead if there had been VAR it would have been seen that it wasn't a sending-off offense", Allegri said. The referee saw what he saw - not very well - and we overcame the obstacles. "We´re not women, let´s play football".

"He was sad after the match, very sad, and we were all sad for him". "The important thing is we reacted as a team".
