Juventus substitute Federico Bernardeschi 8/10 for well-deserved goal

Frosinone held on with gritted teeth but Juventus finally pierced through that strong defence, grabbing a 2-0 victory to make it five wins out of five.

It was clear from the start that the home side had no intention of playing football. Registering 72% possession and attempting 30 shots on goal, Juventus simply spent their time launching attack after attack but couldn't find their way through against a stubborn defence.

Uncharacteristically sloppy and wasteful in possession, the Bianconeri were...

Cristiano Ronaldo cried off on Wednesday night as his Champions League debut for Juventus ended with a controversial red card. 

Ronaldo was dismissed after a clash with Valencia's Jeison Murillo was spotted by the assistant referee and communicated to German referee Felix Brych, who drew a red card from his top pocket.

It was Ronaldo's first red card in 154 Champions League games, and the decision means he could miss a return to Old Trafford when Juventus play Manchester United next...

Federico Bernardeschi 7/10 as the creator in Juventus' opening victory in Champions League

The FC guys explain why it's unlikely Cristiano Ronaldo's red card against Valencia will be overturned, even though they strongly disagree with the sending off.

Despite losing Cristiano Ronaldo to a red card in the opening half-hour, Juventus defeated Valencia 2-0 to collect all three points in the group stages of the Champions League, a competition they are desperate to win.

Prior to his sending off, Juventus attacked Valencia relentlessly, with Federico Bernardeschi getting past his men and delivering great passes into the box. Ronaldo and Mario Mandzukic were threatening, and it seemed like it was only a matter of time before the Old Lady scored. Cue...
