SMASH-AND-GRAB! Manchester United score two late goals to beat Juventus 2-1 

Manchester United secured a stunning Champions League win over Juventus to breathe new life into their European campaign.

Manchester United completed the ultimate smash-and-grab by scoring two late goals to beat Juventus 2-1 and blow open their Champions League group.

With only one win from their opening three Champions League games, and fresh from being dismantled by their opponents at Old Trafford in their last outing, the last place Jose Mourinho wanted to play needing a result was in Turin.

As if they needed it, there was added pressure for United before kick off: Group H rivals Valencia beat Young Boys 3-1 in the early match to leapfrog Mourinho’s men into second place before they’d even kicked a ball.

And for the vast majority of the match, it looked like the pressure on Jose Mourinho was going to increase, especially when Cristiano Ronaldo gave Juventus a deserved lead when he scored a wonderful volley after 65 minutes.

However, United came away with a scarcely-believable win with two goals in the final five minutes.

Juan Mata looked to have given Jose Mourinho’s men a hard-earned point with a wonderful free-kick in the 86th minute, but an Alex Sandro own goal from a second United dead ball three minutes later gave the Red Devils a barely deserved three points.
