Ronaldo controversially sent off, Lyon stun Man City
Juventus kicked off their Champions League campaign with a 2-0 victory at Valencia in a match overshadowed by a controversial red card for Cristiano Ronaldo, while tournament favourites Manchester City were stunned at home by Lyon on Wednesday.
Ronaldo's Champions League debut for Juventus lasted less than half an hour as the Portuguese star was red-carded after a collision with Valencia defender Jeison Murillo.
After tangling with Ronaldo, Colombian Murillo tumbled to the ground holding his face, and referee Felix Brych consulted with the assistant official beside the goal before giving the competition's all-time record goalscorer his marching orders.
‘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.
‘It is very disappointing, we almost lost because of that and we will be without Ronaldo for the next (game).’
