Why Cristiano Ronaldo may not miss Manchester United game after all

Cristiano Ronaldo's Champions League debut with Juventus ended in tears.

Cristiano Ronaldo's first Champions League appearance for Juventus lasted 29 minutes as the competition's record scorer was sent off against Valencia in Spain.

Ronaldo escaped a red card while playing for Portugal against Iran in this summer's World Cup when a VAR decision resulted in him being booked.

Murillo initiated the whole sorry thing by hurling himself to the ground in an attempt to con a freekick inside his own area, as Ronaldo reacted angrily with a bit of a weaselly head-rake... "He's very professional and always wants to win, even in the training games", Ozil added.

Valencia were even awarded a third spot-kick of the match deep into injury-time but Daniel Parejo missed.

Massimiliano Allegri said that... He gesticulated to Murillo to get up and appeared to pull the defender's hair before turning away in frustration.

Ronaldo fell to the floor in disbelief upon receiving his marching orders, before eventually bursting into tears and making his way down the tunnel.

NAIJ.com previously reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed to join Italian champions Juventus in a staggering £88m deal after club's President Andrea Agnelli traveled to Greece to convince him to join the Turin side.

Real Madrid will concede when they take on Roma, but the champions will still win, according to Dan Fitch.

In other matches, Manchester United beat Young Boys 3-0, Lyon defeated Manchester City 2-1, while Bayern Munich overcame Benfica 2-0.

Isco curled home a sumptuous 45th-minute free-kick to give the 13-time champions the lead, before Gareth Bale made it three goals in two Champions League matches after his spectacular double in May's final triumph over Liverpool.

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