Juventus vs. Manchester United - Football Match Report

Share

I thought Juve were very unfortunate to lose after looking great in possession and risky around the box, but as soon as Juan Mata stepped up to take that free-kick I had a feeling it was going in.

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.

Another Manchester United game and another late victor; another game in which United conceded first but another when Jose Mourinho's team showed enough character to fight back.

"What a nice last five minutes", Mata said.

"They did not know when to press and United were simply not in the game long enough to hurt Juventus".

United kept possession very patiently but without Romelu Lukaku did not have a clear threat up front.

"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 fantastic when you look back".

Juventus, on the other hand, looked unsafe every time they went forward thanks to the link-up play between Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala. His effort on Wednesday - the pass from Bonucci, the run from Ronaldo and then to volley the ball as it was coming over his head - was just unbelievable.

Cristiano Ronaldo was quiet for the first hour or so of Juventus' match with Manchester United on Wednesday in the Champions League group stage.

USA puts 'maximum pressure' on Iran as sanctions resume
In all, 700 Iranian entities will be added to sanctions lists on Monday, according to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called this "the toughest sanctions ever placed" against Iran.

"Look, I've not got a problem with it", Murphy said.

"And it is a great joy for me because we won against a super team, and not because they are the enemy of Inter".

"United were far better at restricting them".

I'm not sure whether Lukaku's absence has affected their approach, but Sánchez definitely offers something different when he plays in the striker role.

Ander Herrera says Manchester City may be favourites for Sunday's derby but Manchester United remain the biggest side in the UK.

Unfortunately for United, if City create chances like Juve did - and the Italian champions had two other clear-cut openings as well as their goal - then City will score.

There has been more confidence and attacking intent about the team in recent weeks, looking at their best when their backs are to the wall and when they are underdogs with the vultures circling. I could speak for a lot of young players and United fans that watched the team when he was here and the majority of us have followed him as he's moved on in his career and that's what's special about United.
