Will Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo miss Manchester United game?

Cristiano Ronaldo suffered the first Champions League red card of his career for Juventus. Could he miss a return to Old Trafford

The Portugal forward appeared to pull Valencia defender Jeison Murillo’s hair. He was given a straight red card.

Uefa has opened disciplinary proceedings against Ronaldo and European football’s governing body will deal with the case on 27 September.

Unlike the Premier League’s automatic three-game ban for violent conduct, Uefa’s punishments are on a case-by-case basis.

A one-game ban is automatic  with no right of appeal. But Uefa regulation 50.01 for the competition says that “in case of serious offences, the Uefa control, ethics and disciplinary body is entitled to augment this punishment”.

Ronaldo, 33, will definitely miss their next Champions League game against Young Boys on 2 October – but a two-game ban would rule him out of the trip to his former side Manchester United on 23 October.

Furthermore, if  the three-match suspension hold. Certainly he would also miss Juve’s home game against United on 7 November.

Uefa could possibly decide to increase the ban because of the time it took Ronaldo, who was in tears, to leave the pitch.

On Thursday the organisation said it was waiting. Waiting to receive the referee’s report before deciding whether or not to extend the suspension.

Juventus would be able make an appeal against any increase in the ban.

Opinion From others

But former Red Devils midfielder Darren Fletcher expects the Champions League’s all-time top scorer to play both games against his old side.

It was a soft sending-off for Ronaldo, but the letter of the law says you probably cannot do that. So therefore I think the one-match ban will probably stick, team-mates down in that moment, but I expect him to play in both games against Manchester United.”

Above all, Former United defender Rio Ferdinand Stated that Juventus have surely got to appeal this. But former Celtic forward Chris Sutton said Ronaldo had only himself to blame… definite red.
