Juventus-star player Cristiano Ronaldo receives no suspension, but a fine for his obscene gesture during the Champions League match with Atlético Madrid (3-0) earlier this month. That means that the Portuguese simply be deployed against Ajax in the quarter-finals of the miljoenenbal.
The 34-year-old Ronaldo made the final stage of the duel with Atlético Madrid on 12 march in Turin, the liberating 3-0 through a penalty kick to take advantage of. He’s the fourth that hit then with a suggestive gesture toward the public.
UEFA decided last week to open an investigation because of “inappropriate behavior” of Ronaldo. The attacker was therefore a suspension, but instead, he received from the European football association a fine of 20,000 euros, imposed.
The likelihood was not great that Ronaldo is a suspension would get. Atlético coach Diego Simeone did in the heenwedstrijd against Juventus (2-0), namely something similar – the player grasped his cross for the opening goal of the Pitch to celebrate – and he was awarded also a fine of 20,000 euros.
Summary Juventus-Atlético Madrid (3-0)
Ajax starts with a home game against Juventus
The decision of the UEFA is a boost for Juventus, that as a result against Ajax may have been the most important player. Ronaldo came this season in 36 official matches already 24 times to score for the ‘Old Lady’, where he has since last summer under contract.
Ronaldo scored in the return against Atlético but less than three times and that was after the 2-0 defeat from the heenwedstrijd just enough for the Italians to the quarter-finals to reach. Ajax added for the first time since the season 2002/2003 in the last eight of the Champions League by Real Madrid over two games to beat.
