UEFA opens disciplinary case against Ronaldo

UEFA says its disciplinary panel will judge the case of Ronaldo's first Champions League red card on September 27 to determine if he will miss more than the one game.

Spanish newspaper Marca report that Nedved left his seat to vent his frustrations towards the match official after Ronaldo saw red for a coming-together with Valencia defender Jeison Murillo.

German referee Felix Brych consulted with his assistant and opted to send the Portuguese star off.

It was the 11th red card of Ronaldo's career and first in the Champions League, and will see him miss Juve's next group game against Swiss side Young Boys in Turin.

Now the China coach, Lippi added he did not see any comparison between Ronaldo's red card and the dismissal of Juve team-mate Douglas Costa, who was banned for four matches for spitting into the face of an opponent at the weekend.

"No, you cannot risk compromising a match and, above all, a competition, from the moment that the straight red could leave to a two-match suspension".

"I can only say that VAR would have helped the referee make the right decision", Allegri said after the game.

"With VAR, seeing the way in which Ronaldo was sent off, we have to pay attention to what is done", Simeone was quoted as saying ahead in his press briefing ahead of Saturday's LaLiga clash with Getafe.

"It was a soft sending-off for Ronaldo, but the letter of the law says you probably can not do that, so I think the one-match ban will probably stick", the ex-Red Devils player said.

Manchester United legend Kevin Moran is not confident about seeing Cristiano Ronaldo playing at Old Trafford for Juventus next month.
