Juve squandered another chance in the 17th minute as Sami Khedira fired wide at the far post after some good work by Ronaldo on the flanks.

"It was a small incident, a simple case of hooliganism", said local government delegate Juan Carlos Fulgencio in an audio statement sent to Reuters.

Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off in his first Champions League match for Juventus, leaving the Portugal star in tears as he walked off the pitch.

Juventus will be investigated to determine whether they breached Financial Fair Play regulations after signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid for £99m, according to reports.

However, his first red card in the competition he loves only seemed to galvanise the Italian champions, who evidently have lost none of the quality and strength of character that took them to the final twice in the last four seasons.

Williams was fined $17,000 after remarks she made against tennis umpire Carlos Ramos in the U.S. A few games later Williams smashed a racket after losing a game to go 4-3 behind.

Manchester United top the early Group H table, though, after continuing their recent upturn in form by brushing aside Young Boys 3-0 in Bern to notch a third straight win in all competitions.

Murillo hit the deck after a collision with Ronaldo and it remains unknown whether it was the initial clash or Ronaldo's reaction that resulted in the reigning Ballon d'Or holder's red card.

Despite playing more than an hour with 10 men at Valencia, Juventus eased to victory.

The 33-year-old was given his marching orders after an off-the-ball incident involving Valencia defender Jeison Murillo.

Murillo then gave away a penalty in the second half when bringing down a Juventus player at a corner, which Pjanic again converted. But Wojciech Szczesny parried Parejo's spot kick, which was awarded after Daniele Rugani was adjudged to have elbowed Gabriel Paulista.
