The Juventus superstar will receive only a one-game UEFA Champions League ban for the red card he received Wednesday in his team's win over Valencia, according to The Guardian's Jamie Jackson.

UEFA's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body can also increase the ban if they deem it a "serious offence", which could mean him missing the fixtures against Manchester United on October 23 and November 6.

It was the 11th red card of Ronaldo's career, while his first in the Champions league and has ruled out the former Real Madrid footballer in their next match against Swiss side Young Boys at home.

Another such shocking incident happened yesterday as Cristiano Ronaldo was shown his 1st red card in his 154th appearance in the Champions League.

Ronaldo was livid when he missed out on the UEFA Player of the Year award to Luka Modric.

And that was a viewpoint endorsed by former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg, who believes the assistant referee stationed behind the goal got the decision wrong.

He told BBC Radio Five Live: "Just knowing how much Ronaldo cares, I've seen it in training".

Ronaldo was seen protesting against a dive by Murillo and he put his hand on the Colombian defender's head.

"No, you cannot risk compromising a match and, above all, a competition, from the moment that the straight red could leave to a two-match suspension".

"It is very severe, I think that if you saw the images, you could see that it is incomprehensible", said the midfielder.

"It's a new Real Madrid, totally different even though they haven't signed many players". "I can only say that VAR would have helped the referee make the right decision", Allegri said. We can't go back in time because Ronaldo has already been sent off and the match has finished'.
