Ronaldo Set To Face United After Only Receiving One-Game Ban

Cristiano Ronaldo will be able to face his old club Manchester United in the Champions League next month after UEFA handed the Juventus forward a one-game ban on Thursday.

The Portuguese superstar was sent off in Juve’s win away to Valencia last week and risked a potentially lengthy suspension, but instead, he will only sit out his team’s game at home to Young Boys next week.

A UEFA statement said: “The CEDB has decided to suspend the Juventus Football Club player Cristiano Ronaldo for one (1) UEFA competition match for which he would be otherwise eligible.”
