Catalogue of Ronaldo’s 10 other red cards since 2004

It was his first red card in 154 Champions League games, and the decision means he could miss a return to Old Trafford when Juventus plays Manchester United next month.

There had been no sense of a panic for a team that won its opening three games without Ronaldo scoring, yet a quiet sense of insecurity did linger.

Referee Felix Brych did not hesitate in bringing out the red card to mark an end to Ronaldo's night after 28 minutes.

Valencia coach Marcelino Garcia consoles Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo after the latter was sent off.

On the stroke of halftime Daniel Parejo's reckless challenge on Cancelo earned him a booking and gave Pjanic the chance to send 10-man Juventus into the interval ahead.

Juventus overcame the setback to lead 1-0 at halftime thanks to a Miralem Pjanic penalty.

Manchester United top the early Group H table, though, after continuing their recent upturn in form by brushing aside Young Boys 3-0 in Bern to notch a third straight win in all competitions.

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo is consoled by teammate Federico Bernardeschi, right, after receiving a red card against Valencia. Score was 2-0 in 60th minute.

The introduction of Sergio Aguero as a substitute revitalised City after the break, and Bernardo Silva turned in Leroy Sane's cutback with 23 minutes still to play.

In Group G, Ronaldo's former side Real Madrid were comfortable winners over Roma at the Bernabeu in Spain.

AEK, after ending Olympiakos¹s seven-year hold on the title, returned to the group stage of the Champions League for the first time since 2003-04 with a 3-0 defeat away to Ajax, for whom the Argentinian full-back Nicolas Tagliafico scored twice.
