Ronaldo likely to play against United, might get one-match suspension

Share

Ronaldo tangled with Valencia's Jeison Murillo, appearing to tug at the defender's hair, in the first half of Juventus' 2-0 win on Wednesday (NZT Thursday).

He is set to serve an automatic one-match suspension, which will rule him out of the home game against Young Boys on October 2.

It was feared that Ronaldo could be banned for more than one match if the incident was deemed to be violent conduct.

Meanwhile, TUKO.co.kepreviously had reported that Ronaldo's elder sister Katia Aveiro has lashed out at German referee Felix Brych after issuing a straight red card to the Portuguese.

Juventus beat Valencia anyway thanks to two Miralem Pjanic penalties.

The 24-year-old was speaking to DAZN sports and was quoted as saying "I just found out it (the red card) was because he pulled Murillo's hair".

"So I hope afterwards UEFA will watch the replays and that we can have something positive for him because he does not deserve it".

Ronaldo's case will be heard by UEFA's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on 28 September.

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

Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci added: "Ronaldo was quite angry, unfortunately the referee did not see the situation very well".
