Update: Cristiano Ronaldo has avoided a ban for his controversial celebration, with UEFA instead fining the Juventus player €20,000 EUR (approx. $22,500 USD).


Cristiano Ronaldo has been charged with improper conduct following his goal celebration during the UEFA Champions League Round-of-16 comeback victory against Atletico Madrid. After scoring, Ronaldo ran to the corner flag and mimicked a celebration that Atletico manager Diego Simeone performed in the first leg. The celebration has been described as a “crotch-grabbing” gesture.

If found guilty, Ronaldo could be faced with a one-match ban, ruling him out of the first leg of Juventus’ Quarter Final tie with Ajax. Simeone was found guilty following his celebration, although was fined €20,000 EUR (approx. $22,000 USD) and avoided a ban. Keep an eye out for more news about the charge in the run up to the next Champions League round.

Before the Quarter Finals, refresh your memory of every fixture from the next round.
