Cristiano Ronaldo is yet to receive a red card this season despite making two horrible tackles on two different EPL players. The article states two times the referee and VAR's controversial decision favored Cristiano Ronaldo after a made a bad tackle which would have seen him be dismissed.

Against Manchester City:

In the heat of the game, former Real Madrid and Juventus star players were favored by the Referee and VAR after making a horrible tackle on Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne.

It was a clear tackle, Ronaldo raised his boots, went for the tackle, and didn't get the ball not until De Bruyne fell on the floor. He should have been shown a straight red card for the tackle of the Belgian international.
