Juventus win despite Ronaldo's straight red, City stunned

Cristiano Ronaldo Valencia Juventus Champions League

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

The Portugal international's protests did little to garner sympathy from the referee or his opponents, as Murillo and his Valencia team-mates reacted furiously to Ronaldo.

The pair had come together with Murillo hitting the deck, and Ronaldo reaching down to make brief contact as he passed by the downed defender.

Ronaldo was shown a straight red card for what appeared to be an off-the-ball incident in the Valencia box where it looked as though the opposing defender went down rather easily.

Ronaldo flopped to the ground in disbelief before leaving the pitch in tears.

One of the biggest motivations behind his move away from Real Madrid was believed to be a desire to win Europe's crowning jewel at a third club, but his campaign began in unwanted fashion.

West Nile virus detected recently in Sullivan County
In more severe types of infection, the virus can cause high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, altered mental state and death. The risk of West Nile will gradually decrease this fall, but the threat will linger until the first hard frost of the season.

Despite the man advantage, Valencia didn't step up as many expected with their only crack at goal saw Michy Batshuayi shooting high and wide.

Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Old Trafford against Manchester United will be put on hold after the Juventus star was sent off for doing nothing at all.

Juve squandered another chance in the 17th minute as Sami Khedira fired wide at the far post after some good work by Ronaldo on the flanks.

Joao Cancelo hit the crossbar and was then fouled by Daniel Parejo as he tried to get on the rebound.

Miralem Pjanic struck the penalty into the bottom right corner and did the same six minutes after the break when Brych awarded Juventus another spot kick after Murillo brought down Leonardo Bonucci.
