Manchester United's comeback win at Juventus evokes memories of Alex Ferguson era

"I didn't offend anyone at the end, I just made a gesture that I wanted to hear them louder".

Nineteen years after Sir Alex Ferguson's Treble winners overturned a 2-0 deficit to win 3-2 in Turin, Mourinho's men showed similar fighting spirit to win this game.

Mata had been on the field six minutes, Marouanne Fellaini too, but they were inspired substitutions.

United have developed a nasty habit of starting games slowly - they were a goal down inside 20 minutes when Juventus won at Old Trafford - but that wasn't the case here.

"They have fantastic players and are a top team".

Milan Pavkov's Brilliant Long Range Shot Gives Red Star 2-0 Lead
Liverpool suffered defeat at Red Star Belgrade , while Thierry Henry's AS Monaco were on the end of thumping by Club Brugge. Those victories came against Huddersfield, Cardiff and Red Star when they visited Anfield two weeks ago.

The gesture sparked a small altercation with Juventus players that overshadowed one of the most important results of the season for United, which has struggled domestically but now has a great chance of reaching the knockout stage in Europe. They had not conceded a single goal in the Champions League all season and bought Ronaldo to win the competition after twice being beaten finalists in the last four years.

"United were far better at restricting them". There was more of a thread between United's attacking players against Juve than there is when Lukaku plays.

United looked confident in possession in the opening exchanges but it was Juventus who had another chance shortly after as Rodrigo Bentancur's shot from outside the box was deflected behind for a corner.

Regardless of how well they are playing, however, it's going to be very tough for them against Manchester City on Sunday.

A confident Mata knew he had to take the set-piece. City have scored 12 goals in their last two matches and are in unbelievable form, with Riyad Mahrez showing why he was right to leave Leicester and join a bigger club.

Lowe's Closing Dozens Of Stores Across U.S. And Canada

United will be confident but I'm not sure Mourinho is the type of manager who will go for it at the Etihad.

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.

This time around, Cristiano Ronaldo put the Italian champions ahead ahead with a perfectly-executed volley that was one of the best strikes I have ever seen. "What he proved in Turin was that he can still give his team the tactics to make them competitive against superior opponents", he told the Daily Mail.

PSG are third in Group C after their battling 1-1 draw with Napoli in the Stadio San Paolo cauldron, and while they are only one point behind leaders Liverpool, Tuchel's side have only managed to beat Red Star Belgrade in four matches.
