Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo will be available to play former club Manchester United next month after Uefa ruled he must serve only a one-match ban for his Champions League red card.
The Portugal captain, 33, was sent off during Juventus 2-0 win over Valencia last week after appearing to pull defender Jeison Murillo’s hair.
It was the first Champions League red card of Ronaldo’s career.
Juventus play United in Group H at Old Trafford on 23 October.
A three-match suspension would have seen Ronaldo also miss the return fixture in Turin on 7 November.
He will definitely miss Juve’s next Champions League game against Swiss club Young Boys on 2 October.
