Ronaldo red card to be reviewed by Uefa

Interestingly, the Portuguese was flashed a red card after he appeared to have pulled Valencia defender Jeison Murillo by the hair during Wednesday night's clash.

Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to face former club Manchester United despite been handed a red card in his Champions League debut for Juventus.

This was Ronaldo's 11th red card, but first in the Champions League, with a suspension now set to reduce his scoring power in the group stages.

Speaking on the incident, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri expressed his disappointment and that insisted it shouldn't have been a red card, adding the VAR technology would had been useful.

According to UEFA's regulations, "a player who is sent off the field of play is suspended for the next match in a UEFA club competition (i.e. UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League or UEFA Super Cup)".

AFP Sport understands, however, that an extension to the one-match ban is unlikely. The reported punishment means Ronaldo will miss Juventus' home game against Young Boys on October 2 but will be available to face former club Manchester United on October 23 at Old Trafford.

Canadiens' Drouin blames Ekblad after Domi sucker punch
Max Domi wasn't the only player on the Montreal Canadiens to standout interestingly in a preseason debut. Ekblad was taken off the ice and underwent the NHL's concussion protocol, which he passed.

"Going down to 10 men in the Champions League for an incident like that is disappointing". Juventus would also be allowed to appeal.

"In case of serious offences, the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body is entitled to augment this punishment, including by extending it to other competitions".

"I can only say that VAR would've helped the referee in this decision", Allegri said.

Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi urged UEFA to show leniency.

He made a sexist remark while criticising the referee's decision to send off Ronaldo.
