  • Barcelona President: Juventus will win Champions League with Ronaldo

Juve forward Ronaldo - making his Champions League debut for the Serie A holders - was inconsolable after receiving a red card in the 29th minute of Wednesday's 2-0 win at Valencia.

It was Ronaldo's first red card in Europe's elite club competition in his 154th game.

Ronaldo was shown a straight red card by Felix Brych, the German referee, after appearing to try to pick up Jeison Murillo, the Valencia defender, by his hair when they tangled in the area.

"The only thing I can say is that VAR could have helped the referee make the right decision", said Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri, lamenting the lack of video technology in UEFA tournaments.

Valencia were even awarded a third spot-kick of the match deep into injury-time but Daniel Parejo missed.

It remains to be seen how Uefa judge Ronaldo's offence, and dissent, but he is set to miss the next European game at home to Young Boys on October 2.

Jose Mourinho's men were inspired by Paul Pogba on the artificial pitch, as the French World Cup victor drilled home a brilliant opener before converting a penalty on the stroke of half-time, and setting up Anthony Martial for the third.

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.

After seeing Ronaldo's infraction, it's tough to believe that he'd be suspended for two matches.

"We were playing very well until Ronaldo's sending off but we continued to play our football despite that blow and deservedly scored two goals", he said. "If you give cheap goals away it is hard".

After drawing three blanks in the Italian top flight the ex-Real Madrid man finally broke his duck last weekend, scoring twice to mastermind a 2-1 win over Sassuolo that keeps the Bianconeri at the Serie A summit with a flawless record so far.

Ronaldo joined Juventus for 200 million dollars from Real Madrid in July.

The Spain defender's dubious record aside, it was a spectacular start to the three-time defending champions title defence, with Gareth Bale, Isco and returnee Mariano all scoring, the latter's tally his first-ever in the Champions League.

Bale added the second after a brilliant Luka Modric pass, with the Welshman lashing home brutally to double the score.
