The player has not had the ideal of starts to the season.

"He is a very a demanding player, especially with himself, so I'm sure he will play a great game".

Lippi has been managing in China, where VAR is used, since 2012 - and the 2006 World Cup winning manager said he can not understand UEFA's reluctance to use it in the various European competitions. The Juventus forward gestured at his marker to get up, and appeared to put his hand on the Colombian's head.

Do you think Ronaldo deserved a red card for his actions?

It remains to be seen how Uefa would judge Ronaldo's offence, but he will miss at least the next game at home to Switzerland's Young Boys on Oct 2.

But if Uefa metes out a longer ban, then he will be out for their following Champions League matches - a double-header against his former club Manchester United on Oct 24 and Nov 8.

Emre Can apologised for his comments regarding Cristiano Ronaldo's red card versus Valencia in their Champions League opener earlier this week.

"I think in time I'll be able to provide him with a fair few assists".

His decision to celebrate by removing his shirt to flex his muscles proved costly as he was booked and just two minutes later saw a second yellow card for diving in the referee's eyes in an attempt to win a penalty. "He (Ronaldo) was pretty angry (in the dressing room)".

Two penalties from Miralem Pjanic gave Juventus the victory in Valencia.

Rouhani, appearing on NBC on Monday, cited the threat of more USA sanctions in stating, "There is no such program for a meeting". He says US automobiles, pharmaceuticals and agricultural products will gain better access to Korean markets.


He won his first of his five Champions League titles while with Man United in 2008.

"I thought it was a little disrespectful because for me the men's game is more about rolling over and feigning injury and if he's watched women's football we don't do that", Smith told ESPN.

He was very upset, crying, because he said he didn't do anything wrong.

In Serie A, Juventus lead with a no-fault (4 wins in 4 matches).

"But he makes the extraordinary routine", said Barca coach Ernesto Valverde, whose side had Samuel Umtiti sent off late on.
