Juventus midfielder, Mirajlem Pjanic has described Cristiano Ronaldo’s red card as absurd.
The five-time ballon d’or winner was sent off early in the first half, following a collision with defender Jeison Murillo.
In his first game for Juventus in the UCL, Ronaldo was sent off as Pjanic netted two penalties to see Juve to the win.
“Football is a strange game. We could have been 4-0 up after the opening period, then came that absurd sending off,” Pjanic said, via the club’s website.
“It was like the Lyon game [in 2016]. We dug deep and found the spirit we needed to take us all the way to the final.
“That’s what we need to do again.”
