UEFA have the power to extend Ronaldo's ban by one or more games, meaning he could also miss Juve's trip to Old Trafford later that month.

Spanish newspaper Marca report that Nedved left his seat to vent his frustrations towards the match official after Ronaldo saw red for a coming-together with Valencia defender Jeison Murillo.

A ten-men Juventus, however, defeated their Spanish opponents as Miralem Pjanic succesfully converted two spot kicks, eventually leading the Bianconeri to a 2-0 victory.

But it was Ronaldo's stupidity and petulance in attempting to grab Murillo by the hair which gave German referee Felix Brych the grounds to brandish the first Champions League red card of the player's career.

Juventus' Emre Can has apologised for comments about Cristiano Ronaldo's sending off at Valencia, saying there was no intention to "degrade women".

The red card incurs a one-game suspension for the 33-year-old and he could face further punishment, potentially missing a return to Manchester United when Juve visit Old Trafford for their third Group H game on October 23.

Courtney Hadwin eliminated from America's Got Talent
Howie Mandel and Simon Cowell have both called him the best magician in the show's history. Michael went on to be a fan favorite week after week, all the way until the finals.

The case will be dealt with by UEFA's control, ethics and disciplinary panel next Thursday.

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

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

"The contact looked very slight and I cannot see how the additional assistant, standing some 20 yards away, could deem it violent conduct", Clattenburg said.

"VAR would've helped the referee in this decision", said the Juventus coach.

"Ronaldo was angry, of course".
