Ronaldo sent off for first time in Champions League

Ronaldo was given his marching orders for what appeared to be a relatively innocuous coming-together with Juve defender Jeison Murillo.

Cristiano Ronaldo has a long and proud history in the Champions League having won it five times during his career, although his first ever sending off in the competition caused a certain amount of controversy as Twitter was in uproar on Wednesday night.

Despite playing more than an hour with 10 men at Valencia, Juventus eased to victory.

The star forward first fell to the turf in disbelief, and was later seen with his face in his hands.

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

Ronaldo is the Champions League all-time leading scorer with 120 goals and led Madrid to the title the past three years in a row.

Hurricane Florence has claimed 26 lives in North Carolina. "More than 1.6 million meals have been delivered to North Carolina". Trump is also praising first responders during his visit to a coastal marine base, the first of several stops on his schedule.

Unless the red card gets rescinded, he will be suspended for Juventus' match against Manchester United.

In Group G, Ronaldo's former side Real Madrid were comfortable winners over Roma at the Bernabeu in Spain.

Referee Felix Byrch consulted with his official by the goal side and then gave Cristiano Ronaldo a straight red.

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.

However, his decision to celebrate by removing his shirt to flex his muscles proved costly as he was booked and just two minutes later saw a second yellow card for diving in the referee's eyes in an attempt to win a penalty.
