Ex-Real Madrid forward Ronaldo was dismissed just 29 minutes into his much-anticipated return to Spain following an off-the-ball incident involving Jeison Murillo.

The visitors had the game's first meaningful opening after 11 minutes when Federico Bernardeschi's cross found Mario Mandzukic, who blazed over the top with a first-time finish from close range.

A tearful Cristiano Ronaldo was controversially sent off as Juventus claimed a hard-fought win at Valencia.

Ronaldo's red card will mean he is likely to miss Juve's clash against his former club Manchester United who they face in the third round of fixtures.

Juventus overcame the setback to lead 1-0 at halftime thanks to a Miralem Pjanic penalty.

The video assistant referee (VAR) system is not being employed in the Champions League this season. It's negative for our football, and I'm not interested in the fact Real could be weaker because we want the best football to be played here.

And the game was wrapped up in injury time when summer signing Mariano - on as a substitue for Bale - scored his first Champions League goal for Julen Lopetegui's men.

Unless the red card gets rescinded, he will be suspended for Juventus' match against Manchester United.

"It's obvious that the penalties have impacted us", Marcelino said. But Wojciech Szczesny parried Parejo's spot kick, which was awarded after Daniele Rugani was adjudged to have elbowed Gabriel Paulista.

In the other Group F game earlier on Wednesday, Brazilian youngster Maycon came off the bench to rescue Shakhtar Donetsk a 2-2 draw in their game against group-stage debutants Hoffenheim in Kharkiv. "We risked losing tonight and now we can only hope he is not banned for long".
