Well I never !!!! Man united beat Juventus 2-1. This against the team that is favourite to win the Eu Championship. A team that had not been beaten on home ground since 1993.
We played a much different game to what we had being doing previously this season.
Admittedly they had some luck in that Juventus hit a post and then the cross bar. Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for the home team with a fantastic goal. Man U rode their luck and took the game to the hosts but were unable to pierce the defence of the Italian side. Mourinho made some clever substitutions and Mata scored with a great free kick.
On 90 minutes a scrambled scum in the goal area resulted in an own goal to give United the game. They should now be able the qulify for the knock-out phase but they still have something to do.
Great game to watch - let's hope they can continue this form.
