UEFA sources have given early indication about Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus ban

Cristiano Ronaldo likely to get 1-game ban face Manchester United - sources

Clearer footage of the incident appeared to show that the contact from Ronaldo was minimal and a yellow card was perhaps more appropriate for the supposed 'hair-pull'.

Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to be suspended for just one Champions League match after being sent off against Valencia on Wednesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo reacts after getting a red card. "Mostly because it was the 29th minute in the first half in a hard game, to find yourselves with 10 men for a red card, that was not right".

The referee was greeted by no fewer than three members of Juventus' board of directors at the midway point of the Italian side's 2-0 Champions League victory over Valencia this week.

"The only thing I can say is that VAR could have helped the referee make the right decision", said Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri, lamenting the lack of video technology in UEFA tournaments. "We´re not women, let´s play football".

"I sincerely apologise if any of the comments I made caused any harm". Everyone who knows me knows about my respect for women, equality and respect.

"I would like to state that the comments made were never focused on nor meant to degrade women, women's football or equality in any form".

UEFA's ruling on 27 September will determine whether the striker receives a two-game ban, which would rule him out of the upcoming trip to Old Trafford to face former club Manchester United on 23 October.

Cristiano Ronaldo is not able to appeal the decision, meaning a one game ban will see him miss the next Champions League fixture against Young Boys.
