Man United Stun Juve With Two Late Goals

by | 8th November 2018

Manchester United stunned Juventus with two goals in the final five minutes to beat the Italian champions in Turin and give themselves a good chance of qualifying for the Champions League knockout stages.


Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first Champions League for Juventus as he put the hosts ahead with an outstanding volley on 65 minutes against his former club.


Ronaldo watched Leonardo Bonucci‘s long pass over his shoulder before lashing it past United goalkeeper David De Gea.


Juventus had hit the frame of the goal either side of half-time, with Sami Khedira striking a post and Paulo Dybala curling an effort on to the bar.


Jose Mourinho‘s side offered little attacking threat at the other end, until substitute Mata beat goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny with a well-placed free-kick from the edge of the box in the 86th minute.


Three minutes later and another United free-kick proved Juventus’ undoing, as Ashley Young‘s in-swinging delivery was inadvertently turned in under pressure by Alex Sandro from close range.


The visitors’ late double keeps them second in Group H and two points above Valencia, who beat Young Boys 3-1 in the early kick-off, with two games still to play.
