Man United to take momentum into Manchester derby

Man United to take momentum into Manchester derby

Under-fire Jose Mourinho and Manchester United revelled in an incredible smash and grab victory at Juventus, while Real Madrid continue their revival and Cristiano Ronaldo watches on as his magnificent volley counts for nothing.

United pulled off a result that was never on the cards based on their performance at Allianz Stadium, but they hung in there and came away with three points that no-one expected they would get beforehand either - I certainly didn't.

The 2-1 victory is United's latest memorable win in Turin and boosts their hopes of progressing from Group H to the knockout rounds.

"This is something more I wanted to hear them make comments again or not".

Mourinho is unpopular among Juventus fans after managing bitter rival Inter Milan for three years.

Manchester United pulled off another famous European comeback in Turin as Alex Sandro's last-gasp own goal handed the visitors a 2-1 win.

After the final whistle sounded, a typically bold Mourinho strode onto the pitch and cupped a hand around his ear, while simultaneously sneering at the crowd.

However despite their impressive winning record Juventus have shown weakness this season. "But the others [Juventus fans] didn't forget. We stick together through the hard times and the good and we win games like this, and it puts us on a high". After doing the same against Bournemouth last weekend, this couldbe a turning point for them and their manager, José Mourinho.

"As soon as there was the free-kick in there, I had the confidence that I had to take it", said United's no.8. "We played against a great team and we really had to win tonight". "It's OK to lose against United, but seeing how the match went it leaves us with a bit of a bitter taste".

Allegri was asked if he would have reacted similarly to Mourinho.

It's unclear exactly what was said, but it's clear he was provoked.

"With a cool head I wouldn't have done it, but with my family insulted, including my Inter family, I reacted like this".

Bonucci floated a ball over the top of the defense and Ronaldo watched it over his shoulder before volleying into the top right corner.

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.
