United fight back to snatch unlikely Champions League late win at Juventus

In his post-match presser, Mourinho was even less apologetic and simissed concernt that his actions were against any UEFA rules, telling the assembled press: "You remember what they did to me?"

It could have all been so different after Cristiano Ronaldo's opener for Juventus at the Allianz against Jose Mourinho's visitors, after the Bianconeri had gone close several times earlier in the match in Turin, as well as Juan Cuadrado fluffing his lines soon after the Portuguese has spectacularly struck.

The ever mild-mannered United boss cupped his ear to the Juventus fans, who he claimed had been insulting him throughout, before being confronted by Bianconeri defender Leonardo Bonucci.

Having reached two of the last four finals, Juventus looked like genuine challengers for their first Champions League in over two decades when Ronaldo lashed home his 65th-minute volley.

The 55-year-old could do with some more of that golden touch at the weekend.

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo played down the significance of his team's loss to Manchester United in the Champions League on Wednesday.

OPEC considers 2019 oil production cuts in yet another U-turn
The EIA expects output to break through 12 million bpd by mid-2019, thanks largely to a surge in shale oil production. Afghanistan's imports of Iranian petroleum products were also being exempted from sanctions, the spokesperson added.

Pogba didn't excel, but he was well received at his former club on his return to Italy.

"And it is a great joy for me because we won against a super team, and not because they are the enemy of Inter".

He added: "I think it's always good to be the outsider, so people expect bad of us and then we surprise people". They nearly let United back into it at Old Trafford after switching off and this time they were punished for missing gilt-edge chances by a cynical away side.

The defeat was Juve's first in 15 games in all competitions since Ronaldo signed from Spanish giants Real Madrid in July.

Opposition doesn't come much tougher than Manchester City at the moment. City have scored 12 goals in their last two matches and are in unbelievable form, with Riyad Mahrez showing why he was right to leave Leicester and join a bigger club. Should have made it 3-1. "And especially there is always a lot of negative comments about us but hopefully they might say something positive for once, because I think we deserve it, the team deserve it, the manager deserves it for getting this wonderful result". They are a fantastic team with an incredible record at home.
