Lionel Messi netted a hat trick for Barcelona against PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday, so you could rest assured that Cristiano Ronaldo would have wanted to put on a show in his return to Spain on Wednesday.

The refereeing crew for the Champions League Group H fixture between Juventus and Valencia had other ideas, though, sending off the Portuguese superstar for what they believed was an attempt to strike defender Jeison Murillo’s head.

Ronaldo was trying to escape from the defender for a cross, and Murillo fell to the ground after a minor tangle. Offended by the attempt to dive, Ronaldo confronted the Valencia player which set everything off.

After German match referee Felix Brych consulted with his linesman, he walked over to Ronaldo and issued the red that immediately sent the 33-year-old into tears.

As with most things Cristiano Ronaldo, Twitter was set alight after No. 7 was sent off.
