The sending off will see the 33-year-old miss the Bianconeri's next Champions League clash, against Swiss outfit Young Boys.

Ronaldo has been sent off 11 times in his career: on four occasions with Manchester United, six with Real Madrid and now once for Juventus.

The Portuguese superstar was shown a straight red card for a tussle with opponent player Jeison Murillo in the 29th minute of the Group H match between Juventus and Valencia.

The debate over the justification for Cristiano Ronaldo's Champions League red card in Juventus' 2-0 win against Valencia will probably outlast whatever suspension he receives from UEFA.

Ronaldo's case will be heard by UEFA's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on September 27.

Ronaldo was clearly frustrated when Murillo fell to the ground, running his hand over the top of his opponent's head before gesturing for him to get up.

AFP Sport understands, however, that an extension to the one-match ban is unlikely.

Ronaldo's arrival at Juventus has raised expectations of a first Champions League title since 1996, with share prices peaking at a record 1.8046 euros on the stock market Thursday before closing at 1.581 euros.

The Uefa panel studies all red-card cases and has the power to extend the mandatory one-game ban.

"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".
