  • Barcelona President: Juventus will win Champions League with Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo was left in tears on Wednesday after seeing red on his Champions League debut for Juventus.

In the two years after that penalty shootout victory against Ajax, The Old Lady went on to lose successive finals against Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid.

"He was very upset, even crying, because he said he didn't do anything wrong", he said, according to Marca.

Valencia dominated possession after that but Juventus's well-drilled defence held firm until stoppage time when Brych awarded the third penalty of the game.

Massimiliano Allegri said that...

Ronaldo flopped to the ground in disbelief before leaving the pitch in tears. "It seemed like Murillo put his hands on him first, but it seemed like a normal clash".

The video assistant referee (VAR) system is not being employed in the Champions League this season.


His first real impression, however, was not what anyone in the Mestalla could have imagined though as he was sent off for the first time in the Champions League in his 154th appearance.

While Ronaldo's ban could end up only being one game, UEFA could choose to extend it as a result, and a three-game ban would see the Portuguese star also miss United's trip to Turin on November 7.

If Ronaldo's suspension is capped at one game, things should be fine - Juventus can likely handle its match against BSC Young Boys without the superstar forward.

Bale was the only player from Wednesday's lineup who hadn't started for Madrid in the Champions League final almost four months ago in Ukraine.

Ronaldo will be suspended against the Swiss club unless the red card is rescinded.

Pogba bossed midfield on the artificial pitch and fired United ahead in the 35th minute with a goal of the highest quality, while he added a second from the penalty spot just before the break.

In group E, former European champions, Ajax, will take on AEK Athens of Greece, while Portugal's Benfica will host Bayern Munich.
