Former Barcelona star Luis Garcia believes Real Madrid are fine without Ronaldo

Ronaldo left the field in tears, and could be set to miss both upcoming fixtures against his former club Manchester United.

Ronaldo saw red for Juve's Champions League win at Valencia after an apparent clash with Jeison Murillo.

Cristiano Ronaldo will be allowed to face Manchester United at Old Trafford, despite his red card for Juventus at Valencia.

After the match, Massimiliamo Allegri claimed VAR would have reversed the decision - but UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin is against the idea of introducing the technology into European competitions, despite it being used across various top leagues.

"I don't know too many players who would receive a one-match ban after getting sent-off [with a straight red], it is going to be more than that".

Juventus are yet to confirm whether or not they will be appealing the red card.

The 33-year-old was perhaps unfortunate that German referee Felix Brych opted for a red, rather than a yellow, card but there was still risk in engaging with Murillo.

"Or (Gareth) Bale that since he arrived at Real Madrid he's been in the shadow or the shade of Cristiano Ronaldo".

He told BBC Radio Five Live: "Just knowing how much Ronaldo cares, I've seen it in training".

"I can only say that VAR would've helped the referee in this decision", Allegri said.

"It's a new Real Madrid, totally different even though they haven't signed many players". We can't go back in time because Ronaldo has already been sent off and the match has finished'.

The Portuguese forward won the Champions League four times and LaLiga twice, while he is also Los Blancos' all-time leading goal-scorer.
