UEFA will now wait to receive the referee’s report before deciding whether or not to extend Cristiano Ronaldo’s suspension after red card against Valencia in the Champions League.
Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off after half an hour of Juventus’ 2-0 win away to Valencia after appearing to put his hand on the head of defender Jeison Murillo.
He has received an automatic one-match ban which cannot be appealed but Uefa’s disciplinary panel could extend it depending on the contents of the report sent to them.
If the ban was extended, any appeal from Juventus would have to be heard before match day three, when Ronaldo had hoped to face his old club Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese international left the pitch in tears after German referee Felix Brych decided to send him off.
