Manchester United stunned Juventus with late comeback win

Manchester United created a stunning late comeback to thrash Juventus 2-1 on Wednesday in what could be a turning point in their Champions League campaign.  Juventus were within seconds of confirming their spot in the last-16 after Cristiano Ronaldo put them ahead in Turin with a superb volley in the 65th minute.

The hosts had already hit the woodwork twice before that and should have been out of sight before Juan Mata equalised from an 86th-minute free-kick. The turnaround was completed in the 90th minute when Leonardo Bonucci scored an own-goal, and United boss Jose Mourinho delighted in taking to the field at the end, cupping an ear towards the home support.

United coach said it was a response to insults from Juventus supporters, and Manchester United  are now two points behind the Italians in Group H.

Mourinho told BT Sport:
"In a beautiful Italian city, they insulted me for 90 minutes. I didn't insult them. I just made a little thing.

"It is a big victory for us, not just because we needed the points but because it was away from home against an amazing team."

The result was a blow for Valencia, who are still two points behind in third after beating Young Boys 3-1 at Mestalla.

Santi Mina scored twice either side of a Roger Assale goal, before Carlos Soler sealed the win. Young Boys, who had Sekou Sanogo sent off, cannot now qualify.

While, Premier League defending Champion  Manchester City crushed Shakhtar Donetsk 6-0 as Real Madrid thrashed Vlktoria Plzen 5-0.
