Cristiano Ronaldo Got A Horrendous Red Card In Juventus' First Champions League Match

Cristiano Ronaldo earned a red card just 29 minutes into his Champions League debut for Juventus on Wednesday. While I’m loathe to defend a pampered superstar gazillionaire like Ronaldo, this was a horrendous decision.

Watch:

He patted defender Jeison Murillo on the head and made fun of him for diving. That was it. Just patted him on the head.

Watch again:

Referee Felix Brych has a lot of explaining to do for this one.

ESPN’s Matteo Bonetti had the following to say:

Luckily for Ronaldo, Juventus is an absolute machine and was running circles around Valencia despite being down to 10 men. The Italian giants wound up winning 2-0.
