Ronaldo tangled with Valencia's Jeison Murillo, appearing to tug at the defender's hair, in the first half of Juventus' 2-0 win on Wednesday.

The UEFA panel studies all red-card cases and has the power to extend the mandatory one-game ban.

Ronaldo will miss a home game against Young Boys on 2 October.

The subsequent game for Juventus is on 23 October at Old Trafford, where Ronaldo played for six years. He won the first of his five Champions League titles while with United in 2008.
