Man Utd stage miraculous late comeback at Juventus as Jose Mourinho escorts from pitch

If he felt insulted, they felt hurt. This was a smash and grab. Another Italian job in Turin and once the old cliché was really justified. Manchester United blew the doors from Juventus formidable defense.

Behind a wonderful goal by Cristiano Ronaldo – who else? – with just four minutes to go United hit twice from the free kick to win this tie, to defeat what Mourinho had described as a “super-favorite” to win the Champions League and dared say it, call “the spirit of Turin” The spirit of 1999, the spirit that has characterized its European dreams.

The fact is that United made two goals during the last five minutes of a Champions League game … since the final in Barcelona 19 years ago.

This may have been just a group game and not a semifinal as it was when United came from two goals to beat Juventus to win and win the last but if it was considered Sir Alex Ferguson’s defining match in this ending it was here Mourinho’s best performance as the club boss. Shame he did everything about him – once again – at the end.

If he was riled by Juve, they were riled by him with Leonardo Bonucci, who was involved in the crucial own measure t and protested against his behavior as Paulo Dybala and Rodrigo Bentancur entered before the first young captain Ashley Young intervened and then led a UEFA official Mourinho away.

Even in a moment of glorious triumph, after making sharp substitutions, Mourinho seems only in such a way that it almost gets overshadowed.

If comebacks have characterized United too late, it was on a different scale than to beat Newcastle United or Bournemouth, but it must be said that Juventus already hit the finish line twice, missed three easy chances after they scored to kill this competition.

The unlikely result means United went from having to go to Valencia for their last group game that needs a result to now secure qualifications for the past 16 if they beat young boys at Old Trafford.

Despite Juventus chances, this was another meeting of the meeting two weeks ago when the Italian champions were completely dominant and United had no answer. Here they were more resilient and were also good at Manchester derby this Sunday.

Mourinho had said it would be the game against Young Boys and Valencia who would “define” this champions league campaign but suddenly with this extraordinary victory as the dynamics have changed. Can they benefit from it?

And to think that it was all about being Ronaldo about the old hero who jumped United and giving them a brilliant glimpse of what they used to have when he ran on Bonucci’s excellent ball forward to leave Victor Lindelof in his wake and meet a world-class volley on the go who flew between the post and David De Gea.

For all Ronaldo’s performances in the Champions League it was just up there with regard to the quality of goals made which was his first in the Juventus competition.

Before that and the home team first hit a post and then the crossbar. In the first half, Ronaldo lowered the ball back to Sami Khedira, who was unmarked and eight yards out but wrecking struck his first shot of a post and was deflected for a goal kick. Then, in the second half, Dybala gathered from Juan Cuadrado and from the corner of the area he curled a left foot shot shot at the bar. It left Dybala and De Gea with their arms stretched out in distrust.

Other Herrera had made a difference in the midfield, but frankly, Paul Pogba was poor when returning to his old team. Very poor. And once behind it, United seemed to crumble because the chance became thick and fast.

On his 28th birthday there was an excellent single rescue of De Gea to deny Miralem Pjanic and then the midfielder was teased by Cuadrado but, with the goal waving, he ruled his shot wide.

If they were bad misses, the worst of all came from Cuadrado after Ronaldo ran into the area and hit the ball at him. He leaned back and confused himself and shame on what he just did.

Mourinho felt weakness. On came Marcus Rashford, Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini and they all made a difference. Juve coach Max Allegri responded to Fellaini’s presence and inevitably more direct football by removing Cuadrado for defender Andrea Barzagli but his team lost a little driving force.

Still United needed help and there was a bluff by Blaise Matuidi right on the edge of the area. If there is a weak link in this Juventus team, it might be good to be goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and he did not look confident when he clad his wall – just because Mata would fly the ball past him and into the corner of the net. [19659022] Suddenly, the driving force grew. Another free kick was inevitably recognized by Juve, usually so disciplined, out on the United Left and Young turned the ball into. Fellaini tried to flip it and cause a distraction and Szczesny made it run through. It resurrected Bonucci, then by Pogba (his only, inadvertently unintentional contribution) and then by Alex Sandro before dribbling over the finish line. Remarkable United was ahead, outside a Juventus head.

Mourinho After Match Interview

” The game was a very good game, high level game. We perform at high level, after their goal we had five minutes to wake up again, but the team was there for the first minute.

“In a beautiful Italian way they insult me ​​for 90 minutes, then I did not insult them, I just did a little thing. I feel millions of interests, but I respect Juventus, their players, their boss, their quality, I’m really proud of my boys.

“A couple of our boys they said at home at home that they were a little … I work around this. We must come and not feel inferior. Everyone knows that their ambitions are different from us, we have to go until the last second of the game, the situation was different. Start well with good control of the game and of course they are strong and Cristiano can of course do that goal and the pass was from a central defender. It’s a big victory for us because it’s against a fantastic teamed up with a fantastic team like Juventus.

“We thought we would have two finals to play now we have one. If we win it against young boys, if my math is right, we qualify with victory over young boys. I hope we arrive on time, not late, we had a fantastic escort here, thanks to the Italian police. Let’s hope we arrive in time for young boys. “

90 min +4 – Juventus 1 Man Utd 2

Martin Keown has just said “Is this their best European achievement ever?”. I’m not sure he has followed any of his other seasons. There were some decent results in 1999 for example.

Juventus retrieves pressure now, throw all forward, Chiellini is evenly ahead. But United is ready to break and Martial and Rashford are gone! Rashford has a v one! HE HAS TO SCORE! SAVED! Big miss of Rashford!

 rashford miss

Look how close he was here. Great goalkeeper but Rashford should have done it, chipped it, placed it, anything but power.

Martial is far from the best player in this United team and he is only ine his man to the left with a little skill and then burst into the box. The cross comes in and the goalkeeper throws himself in the ball but gets away with it! The change of form to a 3-5-2 has not begun well for Juve.

Pogba wins a free kick in the Beckham area.

Juventus still asks all football-specific questions and provides many answers. They are all: Ronaldo.

Pjanic wins a free kick by placing his mouth on Martial’s stretched hand.

The Sciglio on and off will Barzagli as Juventus see closing the game down.

Ronaldo unfortunately makes the ball out for a goalkeeper while doing some tricks and it’s furious with himself. Herrera is off, Mata on. Sanchez of, Fellaini on. I think he might be nine. It seems that Rashford has gone downtown now actually.

Fellaini wins one right directly, the ball falls to Rashford … who goes forward and starts a shot! Just wide! Great effort.

78 min – Juventus 1 Man Utd 0

Ronaldo dress up a 35 meter knuckleball and whacks it straight into the boots of the players in the wall. Not his best.

 Ronaldo shot

Juventus is back on the ball shortly after and Pjanic has it. There’s room in front and he’s shooting! My word is close. Like a missile. Pjanic shots fly over the bar and again you saw De Gea all the way if it was on goal.

<p class = “canvas-atom canvas text Mb (1.0em) Mb (0) – sm Mt (0.8em) – sm” type = “text” content = ” 9:33 PM ] “Data Reaction Time =” 284 “> 9:33

75 min – Juventus 1 Man Utd 0

And that should be 2-0. Ronaldo sets Cuadrado instead of firing, and Cuadrado gets caught when looking at Ronaldo. He leans back as he pushes and pushes the shot from about 12 meters out – there was no way De Gea went close if it was on goal.

Pogba has lost the ball again. Dybala hits a very long ball to Ronaldo, chasing it on, Herrera and Dybala collapse and fall to the ground of the ball. It’s a booking for both players … and a free kick to Juventus. I do not really get it.

And now it feels like the waves of Juventus momentum might just begin to drain this Man Utd-team. Pjanic goes close, but for a neat save by De Gea.

Sanchez leder upp en fri- kick bred rätt och smalling kommer in som en rugby spelare, torka en försvarare ut och erkänna en frispark. Bra gjort Mr Smalling.

Här är besittningen hittills. United har närmat sig det här väldigt bra, de håller bollen och vinnar den bra igen, snabbt i defensiv form.

It&#39;s a pretty weird shape from United. Like a 4-4-2 at times but a 4-3-3 at others and when Juve take goal kicks they press as a 4-2-4, with Pogba going next to Sanchez flanked by Martial and Lingard.

You can sort of see the defensive shape there, like a lopsided 4-4-2.

Cuadrado takes a sore one from Luke Shaw and Juve now have a free-kick wide right.

The referee slows things down as he tells Lindelof off for getting too close to Ronaldo. Pjanic curls it in… and it&#39;s cleared by Shaw.

Juventus want to attack now but they don&#39;t send too many players forward, favouring caution. Ronaldo doesn&#39;t have a lot of options and so tries a power shot from distance that looks scary but actually ends up harmlessly wide.

Sandro is making a lot of forward runs down the left wing and Cuadrado has fallen to the ground in the penalty area off the ball as Sandro chips in a cross. Nobody cares except Cuadrado.

Bentancur has space to shoot on the edge of the box and wins a corner… but again United deal with it pretty well. Another counter-attack is cut out by Juve defending.

Mati is booked for flying in on Dybala from behind. Clear yellow.

The pitch opens up as Lingard wins the ball back and plays in Martial, who tries to heel chop near the area and loses out. Shaw hits a ball into the channel but doesn&#39;t get the power on it he needs and Sanchez can&#39;t get there before it&#39;s intercepted.

Aww that&#39;s nice. The Juve fans miss Pogba. I&#39;m going to assume they don&#39;t have access to Match of the Day in Italy.

This is a much better performance from United than we saw for any length of time at Old Trafford against Juventus or Bournemouth. Lingard has intercepted the corner and carried the ball into the final third but the pass into Martial is short and the move ends.

It&#39;s genuinely impressive from United, I&#39;ve not seen them move the ball around like this for quite a while. They&#39;re pushing men high up the pitch from goal kicks too, putting pressure on Juve players.

United putting everyone in the box as Juventus attack them but they&#39;re still leaving space in the box. How is that happening?

There are 10 men behind the ball yet Dybala has scooped it over the top and Ronaldo wins a corner with a shot.

FOUL THROW! Martial commits the embarrassing sin of not throwing the ball properly and spoils a United attack. That never happens at this level, or it&#39;s never noticed by the referee anyway.

United are really taking the game to Juve early on but Young has just punted a cross behind for a goal kick again. Allegri is out on the touchline making angry gestures at his team.

United attack from the start and thread a clever ball into Alexis Sanchez on the edge of the box! He can&#39;t quite conjure anything from it and Juve get the ball up the other end. Pjanic crosses to the back post but it&#39;s behind for a goal kick.

Wojiech Szczesny has booted the ball off Dybala&#39;s head

And he might have actually knocked him out. It&#39;s maybe not as severe as that but Dybala goes down after the ball is punted off the back of his head and it takes him a while to get up. Szczesny comes over to say sorry but Dybala isn&#39;t happy about it.

Mourinho pre-match

“It&#39;s important but it&#39;s not crucial. We will not leave this stadium qualified but we also won&#39;t be in the Europa League. The decision will be the last one in Valencia.

“I don&#39;t know (how to start the game better). We speak about it, we try with training to bring this concentration.

“At home we played with Mata behind three attacking players, we didn&#39;t have players on the bench to change the dynamic, the intensity. We had an attacking team on the pitch but today can be different. I have Rashford on the bench who gives me an alternative for the second part of the game.

“We think this is a game we need Lingard&#39;s creativity, hopefully he has the confidence to play a difficult opponent.”

Here he&#39;s pointing out things that are amusing to him. “Yeh exactly. They have Bonucci, Chiellini, Barzagli… and look at that. Phil Jones can&#39;t even tie his shoelaces”

Ferdinand on Pogba

“He doesn&#39;t have the structure at Man Utd, he plays on the left, the right of midfield.

“At Man City when Silva gets the ball he knows Leroy Sane is running down the left. United don&#39;t have that blind understanding.”

We used to play 4-4-2 every game and always 4-5-1 away. You get into them the first 20 minutes but sometimes you&#39;re playing against a technical team and it&#39;s better not to.

We used to change things tactically especially against the English teams because we knew they&#39;d come out running. We used to just sit in, let them hustle and bustle for 20 minutes and then pick them off.

Ferdinand (and the panel) want an attacking performance

“The first half or until they go behind it feels like the shackles are on. When they&#39;re a goal down the tactics go out the window and that&#39;s when they start to play.

“You&#39;re playing against a back four who are ageing, great players but ageing, they should put them out of their comfort zone.”

Jesse Lingard starts ahead of Marcus Rashford, who might be playing the role of impact sub tonight. On in the 70th minute to replace someone and chase balls over the top.

Hello!

The last time Juventus met Manchester United they absolutely battered them. The score was only 1-0 but in metaphorical football terms, United were given a hiding. Tonight we&#39;re watching the game in Turin, Italy, somewhere that isn&#39;t Old Trafford and therefore probably a far more difficult environment for Man Utd to perform in.

<p class=”canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm” type=”text” content=”Cristiano Ronaldo will play tonight even though he has admitted recently that the rape allegations against him are “interfering” with his life and reputation&nbsp;but we&#39;ll be discussing the football and nothing else this evening.

It certainly didn&#39;t seem to affect him in the last game, with him setting up the only goal of the match.

Ronaldo has been Juventus&#39; best player this season – shockingly – having scored seven goals in 11 games and also providing five assists. But it&#39;s not just Ronaldo that Man Utd players need to worried about. We need to see who&#39;s fit and who&#39;s playing before we know how Juve plan to approach this game but United must ensure Miralem Pjanic doesn&#39;t control the game, protect against the full-backs providing crosses, and beware the danger of Mario Mandzukic or Paolo Dybala – maybe even both – depending on who plays.

A Juventus win would guarantee them safe passage to the knock-out stages, a draw means they&#39;ll probably still win the group and a win for Man Utd would mean Mourinho&#39;s men could quite very likely qualify if not win the group should results go their way. Juventus don&#39;t like conceding goals, United haven&#39;t been scoring many – I have no idea how this match is going to go. What I do know is that United have to turn up in the first half. Bournemouth could&#39;ve been 3-0 up against them – Ronaldo doesn&#39;t play for Bournemouth.
