Manchester United were phenomenal as they overturned a late Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal to complete a 2-1 comeback at the Allianz Stadium in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
The pulsating encounter saw United equaling their own record of coming back from a goal down to win in the final five minutes of a match for the first time in the UEFA Champions League since the 1999 final against Bayern Munich.
The game did live to expectations as both teams playing on the deadly attack but it was Juventus that had most of the chances but failed to bury them which was their undoing.
The Bianconeri have not lost a single game this season in all competitions and were hoping to maintain that record, but a late display from the Red Devils have put an end to all that.
On a night Paul Pogba returned to the club that shot him to the limelight, it was Ronaldo who found a way to break the deadlock and end his goal own drought in the Champions League this season after playing 20 shots in 453 minutes scoring in the 65th minute with Juve already running away.
The goal was a shot in the arm for Manchester United who began to push for the equalizer and the efforts paid off when Spanish international, Juan Mata equalized for Manchester United in the 86th minute.
Leonardo Bonucci went on to score an own goal following a freekick by Antonio Valencia which Juventus goalkeeper, Szczesny failed to properly deal with the ball.
The game now brings an end to Juve unbeaten run as Manchester United revive their hope of qualifying for the next stage.
