Cristiano Ronaldo's sister speaks out on 'disgraceful' red card

Ronaldo broke down in tears after the German ref chose to send him off when he put his hand on Valencia defender Jeison Murillo's head.

Referee Felix Brych consulted with his assistants and brandished a straight red for Ronaldo's apparent attempt to pull Murillo's hair, meaning the 33-year-old, who was reduced to tears in the aftermath to the dismissal, could miss a reunion with former club Manchester United in October, if UEFA chooses to extend his mandatory one-match ban.

Ronaldo looked baffled and kept professing his innocence, sitting down on the pitch in disbelief.

Clattenburg said in the Daily Mail: "Cristiano Ronaldo was very unfortunate to be sent off on his Champions League debut for Juventus".

Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off in the 29th minute of his first Champions League match with Juventus on an absurdly soft call. "These three important points, which allow us to face the group in a different way, but we still have to win the matches that are left".

"You could say he's increased the players' desire to prove themselves", Allegri said.

Duda said, "I invite you to post more American military troops in Poland", and offered to name the base "Fort Trump". They respect strength, as anyone does, and we have the greatest strength in the world, especially now".

If Ronaldo's behaviour is adjudged to be overly aggressive then UCED could ban Ronaldo for an additional one or two matches.

Ramos, 32, passes former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes as the most cautioned player in the competition and also holds the record for the most yellow cards in a single Champions League campaign, picking up five bookings in the 2010-11 and 2012-13 seasons.

"We were playing very well until Ronaldo's sending off but we continued to play our football despite that blow and deservedly scored two goals", he said.

Katia Aveiro, the sister of Cristiano Ronaldo, has lashed out at her brother's critics following Wednesday's red card, accusing them of trying to destroy him, while promising that justice will be served.

Mariano, wearing the number seven shirt vacated by Ronaldo, rounded out the win in stoppage time with a searing shot into the top corner from the edge of the box in his first game back at Real since rejoining from Lyon. But Wojciech Szczesny parried Parejo's spot kick, which was awarded after Daniele Rugani was adjudged to have elbowed Gabriel Paulista.

Once Ronaldo is up and running, they will be well placed to chase a first Champions League title since 1996.
