Nobody was expecting that scoreline.

FW Jesse Lingard, 6 - Back in the team after seven games out but started well, finding pockets of space in the first half, particularly when United were trying to break.

It didn't take a lot to convince Ashley Young. They have fantastic players and are a top team but we're going back to Manchester with three points.

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.

However, prior to Wednesday, Juventus hadn't lost all season.

Not for nothing were the 2,000 travelling fans singing "Oh what a night" among other songs ahead of Sunday's Manchester derby, the third hard away game in eight days, the first two of those 2-1 victories.

Mata stepped up and scored a stunner of his own in the 86th minute, curling home a marvelous free-kick to tie the match late.

Ronaldo is the all-time record scorer in the Champions League with 121 goals, but this was his first in the competition for Juventus - although he missed one match through suspension after his red card against Valencia.


'What a nice last five minutes! 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. But even so United won and that was a good sign. They are a fantastic team with an awesome record at home. "It is a very good night for us to get three points against Juventus in Italy".

"We carried on, we pushed and we know that we can be unsafe on free-kicks because they defend very well (in open play)".

Jose Mourinho's men come into the match on the back of a shock Champions League victory over Juventus in midweek.

Goaded by the home fans throughout, he reacted at the end by surging on to the field and cupping his ear to the home supporters before being led off the field. Although the Portuguese admitted that he probably should not have done that, most United fans were delighted that he did.

Marcus Rashford says Cristiano Ronaldo is his biggest inspiration in football and is amazed at the Juventus striker's longevity.

"We have one final to play at home against Young Boys".
