Manchester United looked headed towards a defeat that would have seen the team finish the day in third place in the group behind Juventus and Valencia. But late magic helped this team overcome Cristiano Ronaldo’s absurd opener and earn a golden three points on the road with a 2-1 win at Juventus.
First there was Juan Mata’s free-kick goal in the 86th minute and then the fortunate own goal from Alex Sandro in the 89th. This victory is huge when it comes to their chances of moving on. These three points move United from the slight favorite to finish second to the heavy favorite.
