Ronaldo scores but Man United stun Juve with two late goals

Share

DF Victor Lindelof, 6 - courageous block from a Ronaldo shot early on but lost him when Leonardo Bonucci floated a ball over the top to allow the former United man to smash Juventus into the lead.

"Probably when Manchester United had heroics here (in 2003), Manchester United was the best team", Mourinho said.

After United's 1-0 loss to Juventus at home two weeks ago, he responded to the goading of the Italian fans by holding up three fingers toward them, denoting the treble of titles - Champions League, Serie A and Italian Cup - he won with Inter in the 2009-10 season.

"We're enjoying our football, enjoying winning games and enjoying the pressure of playing in big games", said Lingard.

Then just after the hour, Bonucci played a wonderful ball over the top for Ronaldo whose side-foot volley whistled past De Gea to open the scoring.

DF Ashley Young, 7 - Fantastic cross into the box from the right which squirmed into the net to hand United victory.

"People don't do that at his age, people are usually heading towards the end of their career and their level starts going down a little bit, but he's just gone up and up and up".

But clearly plans have been altered backstage in order for Lesnar to be crowned champion - and it all stems back to Roman Reigns. If nothing else there is now a chance that Brock Lesnar holds the WWE's most prestigious title when he returns to the UFC.

"What really annoys me is losing a match we deserved to win, but at this stage it doesn´t matter that much, we still have nine points". Another great goal in the Champions League for Ronaldo, and he seems to be collecting them at the Allianz Stadium after the unforgettable overhead kick for Real Madrid there last season.

Ronaldo's comments, coupled with his goal celebration, has been strongly criticized by a section of United fans on social media. A point was the least they needed to have a chance of qualifying for the last 16 but winning was wonderful, and now they are in a strong position to make the knock-out stage.

Pep Guardiola's swashbuckling Manchester City lie in wait at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, when the Red Devils will look to build on a tremendous Champions League night in Turin.

"The thing that is a massive eye-opener for me now is I remember when he first came his talent was arguably one of the biggest talents that we've seen at United for a long time; to have him and Wayne [Rooney] in the same team was wonderful when you look back".

"But Martial I think deserves special mention, I thought he was Man United's best player on the day". I'm not sure United have what it takes, but you never know. Valencia, which earlier beat Young Boys 3-1, is two points further back.

"We managed to win because we played a very, very positive match and we looked for the victory to the very end".
