Ronaldo cleared to play Manchester United in UCL


Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been cleared to face his former club Manchester United next month after Uefa ruled he must serve only a one-match ban for his Champions League red card.

Ronaldo was sent off during Juve’s 2-0 win over Valencia last week after appearing to pull defender Jeison Murillo’s hair and will miss Juve’s next Champions League game against Swiss club Young Boys on 2 October.

It was the first Champions League red card of Ronaldo’s career.

A one-game ban is automatic – with no right of appeal – but Uefa regulation 50.01 for the competition says that “in case of serious offenses, the Uefa control, ethics, and disciplinary body is entitled to augment this punishment.”

The former Real Madrid star will be out against Young Boys but he would make a return to the Old Trafford on 23 October to face Manchester United.

He would have missed the match if he was hit with a three-match suspension and also miss the return fixture on 7th of November.
Juventus will play United in Group H at Old Trafford on 23 October.

Five-time Champions League winner Ronaldo joined Juve from Real Madrid for £99.2m in the summer.
