Champions League: UEFA Reduces Ronaldo’s Ban



Cristiano Ronaldo will be available to face his former club, Manchester United, in the Champions League next month after being handed a one-match ban by UEFA for his red card against Valencia.

Ronaldo was shown a straight red card by referee, Felix Brych, during the first half of the encounter, following a coming-together with Jeison Murillo in an off-the-ball incident.

The Portuguese captain left the field in tears at his debut in the competition for Juve.

UEFA confirmed that the 33-year-old will be suspended for only a single game against Young Boys in Turin after its Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Board (CEDB) decided not to increase the automatic penalty at a meeting on Thursday.

“The CEDB has decided to suspend the Juventus player Cristiano Ronaldo for one Uefa competition match for which he would be otherwise eligible,” read a statement on UEFA’s official website.
