UEFA Champions League Report: Valencia v Juventus 19 September 2018

Cristiano Ronaldo was shown a red card for Juventus against Valencia in the Champions League on Thursday night. His sending off means he could miss the Champions League match against Manchester United

The night was meant to be all about Ronaldo's first Champions League appearance for the club he has tormented so often down the years for Real Madrid.

Ronaldo will miss Juventus' next match in the competition against Young Boys on October 2, and could miss his return to Manchester United three weeks later if his ban is set at two matches. Scholes, a notoriously clumsy tackler in his day, never earned more than four yellows in one campaign.

The 33-year-old directly contributed to half of Real Madrid's Champions League goals between 2009-10 and 2017-18, coming top of the goalscorer charts in each of the last six seasons. I knew that I was working well and it was only a matter of time.

And Bale, scorer of a brace in Madrid's defeat of Liverpool in last season's final, made sure of the points with a placed finish after racing through on goal from Luka Modric's pass, with substitute Mariano going on to add a third in stoppage time.

Los Blaoncos will start the tournament without their former manager, Zinedine Zidane, who won the Champions League in 2016, 2017 and 2018. "It's disappointing because now we'll lose him for a few games and instead if there had been VAR it would have been seen that it wasn't a sending-off offence".

"The second half was a bit too open, maybe, but Isco had a wonderful game in all aspects, on and off the ball sacrificing himself".

Lopetegui has insisted he is ready to embrace the pressure of Real's Champions League defence. Lopetegui also kept Keylor Navas in goal despite the recent arrival of Thibaut Courtois, voted the World Cup's best goalkeeper with Belgium. "We conceded many counter-attacks and at this level you get punished", said City assistant coach Mikel Arteta, who was filling in for Guardiola.
