An inconsolable Cristiano Ronaldo was controversially sent off just 29 minutes into his first Champions League appearance for Juventus.

The Portuguese received his marching orders following an off-the-ball incident with Valencia defender Jeison Murillo.  

 

As a result, the 33-year-old will miss the next two games in Group H – Juventus' home date against Young Boys and their trip to Old Trafford to face his former club Manchester United.

 

Ronaldo is the competition's highest scorer with 120 goals and will have to wait until matchday four, when Juve host Manchester United,  for a chance to open his European account for his new club.
