Italian media rated every player from Juventus 1-2 Manchester United


Manchester United are now in an ideal position to advance from their Champions League group after a 2-1 win against Juventus.

Things looked concerning for the Red Devils when Cristiano Ronaldo scored a superb goal in the 65th minute.

But Juan Mata scored a free-kick and Alex Sandro bundled the ball into his own net to hand Jose Mourinho’s side all three points.

The result means that United can afford to draw against Valencia to progress to the knockout stage, providing they defeat Young Boys.

It’s now three wins in a row for the Premier League club and Mourinho will be delighted with the resilience that his players showed.

Juventus had more chances - they attempted 23 shots compared to nine from Man United - but they were only able to score once.

And after Mata equalised, United seized their opportunity to grasp a late victory.

Italian media rate the players

Man United fans voted the Spaniard the man of the match, despite the fact that he was only on the pitch for 11 minutes.

Yet Italian publication Calciomercato also rated Mata’s performance, giving him a seven out of 10 rating. They rated Man United's starting line-up as well as Mata and Marcus Rashford.

Marouane Fellaini, who also came off the bench, didn't receive a score.

But they will probably need to defeat Juventus in Italy on November 27 to have any chance of progressing.
