Ronaldo To Miss Old Trafford Reunion Following Juve Red

Ronaldo was distraught with the referee's decision, after he seemed to pull the hair of a grounded Murillo.

An off-the-ball collision with Valencia defender Murillo prompted the referee, Felix Brych, to brandish a red card and send Ronaldo off after just 28 minutes. The Juventus player protested the decision before leaving the pitch in tears.

The red card received by Ronaldo today was his 11th in his stellar career.

It is Ronaldo's first red card in 154 Champions league matches.

It was a match that looked like it could have ended poorly for the Italian side after going down to 10 men, but the team was able to convert two penalty kicks to take the three points.

Despite the numerical advantage, Valencia posed little threat going forward but nearly grabbed a consolation in stoppage time when it was given a penalty of its own.

"But Juventus have showed great character in getting a fantastic result, and I expect him to play in both games against Manchester United".

To add insult to injury, a first half substitution happened after Khedira, guilty of a big miss seconds ago, struggled to continue after picking a hamstring and was replaced by Emre Can on 22 minutes.

Manchester City suffered a surprise 2-1 defeat at home to Lyon in Group F.

With the suspended City manager Pep Guardiola forced to watch from the stands, Nabil Fekir then made it 2-0 in the 43rd minute with a sweetly struck drive after being set-up by Memphis Depay.

City earned themselves a lifeline through Bernardo Silva, who produced a smart finish after a superb jinking run from substitute Leroy Sane.

Lyon, however, smothered City's attack well and kept chances to a minimum in the latter stages as they held on for an impressive victory.

In Group F, Shakhtar Donetsk twice came from behind to draw 2-2 with Hoffenheim, who scored goals through Florian Grillitsch and Havard Nordtveit.
