United fight back to snatch unlikely Champions League late win at Juventus

United have had the fewest 10+ pass sequences of any of the big six teams

Manchester United snatched an extraordinary and barely deserved 2-1 win at Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday (Nov 7) with a late free-kick from Juan Mata and a scrappy own goal from Alex Sandro, revitalising their hopes of reaching the last 16.

The 55-year-old could do with some more of that golden touch at the weekend.

When Juan Mata's free-kick curled over an unusually disorganised Juventus wall and past Wojciech Szczesny after 86 minutes, Massimiliano's Allegri's side were stunned.

Manchester United turned the clock back to 1999 by turning defeat into victory against Juventus with a dramatic late victory in Turin.

Ronaldo scored his first Champions League goal for the Serie A giants with a tremendous volley in Turin, but they were beaten despite a dominant performance.

The France worldwide was back in Turin in Wednesday as he took in a Champions League outing with the Red Devils. Juventus were doubly stunned when United scored again three minutes later.

United's players sprinted towards their manager in delight.

Democrats capture US House majority in rebuke to Trump
A disproportionate number of the seats up for election were in traditionally Republican states with Democratic incumbents. In gubernatorial races, Republican Kris Kobach, a Trump ally, was beaten by a Democrat in Kansas.

"We carried on, we pushed and we know that we can be unsafe on free-kicks because they defend very well (in open play)". I think Anthony Martial has been very important for them recently because he gives them the ability to get past players and supplies a finisher's touch up front.

Napoli, who have mostly failed to transfer their recent domestic revival to the European stage, were unlucky to not have won at least one of their two clashes with megabucks PSG and on Tuesday gave as good as they got in their 1-1 draw with Thomas Tuchel's side.

It is a big ask for United to stop them, and they will have to play much better than they did against Juve to stand a chance.

"I didn't realise it was a fantastic goal until I saw the replay", he said.

Jose Mourinho's side will play Young Boys and Valencia in their final two group matches, with qualification now firmly in their hands. United's man in form and their most unsafe forward again. "We stick together through the hard times and the good and we win games like this, and it puts us on a high".

The result solidfies United in second place behind Juve at the top of Group H, but now with just two points different.

MF Paul Pogba, 6 - Back at the club where he made himself a star, it was one of those nights when nothing seemed to come off.
