What exactly did Ronaldo do to get a straight red?

Juventus were attacking Valencia's goal from the left-wing when Ronaldo slipped into their penalty area, waiting for a cross.

When Valencia defender Jeison Murillo tried to block CR7, Ronaldo gave him a slight push due to which Murillo fell down.

Ronaldo, then, touched his head and asked him to get up.

Seeing this, the assistant referee warned the referee, who showed Ronaldo the red.

Manchester United

Will Ronaldo miss his match against Manchester United?

Support has been pouring in, after the red card, which would see the most successful individual in Champions League history not play against Manchester United.

Notably, CR7 had come to limelight while playing for Manchester United.

However, if his suspension is reduced by UEFA, he would participate in the duel against his former club.

This was CR7's first red card in 154 UCL games.
