The star player had raisedhis hand to Murillo, the defender tumbling to the ground and reacting to the Portugal international pulling at his hair, having consulted with his assistants, referee Felix Brych sent Ronaldo off which left him in tears.

The red card incurs a one-game suspension for the 33-year-old and he could face further punishment, potentially missing a return to Manchester United when Juve visit Old Trafford for the third Group H game on October 23.
