Cristiano Ronaldo’s red card in the 30th minute against Valencia for a possible aggression against Jeison Murillo could have grave consequences for the Portuguese player.

What UEFA referee Felix Brych wrote in his report is crucial. The reports are not published like in Spain, only the two clubs are sent them.

If the referee considered Ronaldo’s grab on Murillo an aggression, he would face a three game ban.

If that was the case, Ronaldo would not reappear until November 27, Valencia’s visit to Turin.

That means he would miss both games against Manchester United, his former side, and a clash with Young Boys.

This is the worst case scenario for Juventus. However UEFA can make their own decision on Brych’s red card and reduce the punishment to two games or even one.

One is the minus that he will face, meaning he is guaranteed to miss the game against Young Boys on October 2, the first UCL match at home for Juve.

With UEFA you cannot appeal the one match ban. Sport have learned that UEFA will meet on September 27 to discuss the incident.
