Juventus are currently, at the time of writing, 1-0 up against Valencia at half-time in their UEFA Champions League clash. Despite this lead, the visitors have been struggling, especially after the injury of Sami Khedira and, more importantly, the straight red card given to €110million signing Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo made slight contact with Valencia’s Murillo, who overreacted and confronted Ronaldo, leading the referee to award a straight red card for Ronaldo. The decision was, arguably, incorrect; with only the slightest of contact being made, yet Ronaldo was shown a red and the exit on his Juventus Champions League debut.
When heading off the field, Ronaldo said to Valencia boss Marcelino “no he hecho nada’, which translates to ‘I did nothing’.
