Juventus are the group favourites and had a 100% record going into the game.

With the match played at Turin, few expected the Red Devils to get anything from the game.

Juve had the better of the chances with Sami Khedira striking the post with David De Gea beaten.

As if it was scripted, the game came alive in the 65th minute as Cristiano Ronaldo struck the opener.

Bonucci’s beautifully lofted through ball was met on the volley by the brilliant Portuguese ace.

Ronaldo broke tradition and celebrated wildly as the Juve faithful were in raptures following the wonder-strike.

However, the game turned on its head with Juan Mata’s delightful free kick providing the equaliser.

Then, United scored the winner completely against the run of play in the 89th minute.

Paul Pogba seemed to have ironically scored the winner but replays later showed that it was an own goal conceded by Alex Sandro.

Manchester United fans were quiet earlier in the season but their team’s recent form has inspired many to take to social media.
