Juventus vs. Manchester United - Football Match Report

Ander Herrera hopes that underdogs Manchester United can show their bite in the Manchester derby and replicate their stunning win at Juventus.

United appeared to have a little more about them than they did when taught a footballing lesson by Juve at Old Trafford two weeks ago, though the hosts still controlled the first half and nearly scored when Sami Khedira hit the post.

"It's true that they are the favourites because they are in unbelievable form, but this is Manchester United and you never know what can happen". There you have United winning, playing really well towards the end, but all the focus is still on what the manager did after the game.

Then just after the hour, Bonucci played a wonderful ball over the top for Ronaldo whose side-foot volley whistled past De Gea to open the scoring.

Then in the final minute an Ashley Young freekick was headed on by Marouane Felliani into the path of Pogba who se shot was deflected home by Sandro.

Juventus controlled things but a clipped ball to Alexis Sanchez nearly opened the door at the other end, only for it to be just out of the Chilean's reach. They bought that player (Ronaldo), they want to win everything, they can win everything and we are a team where numerous players didn't play big matches like this in the Champions League. "We should have won the game easily, by three or four goals". It's been nine years since Ronaldo left United so although there is a respect there, you can't score a goal like that and not celebrate.

As I said on 5 live, I would not single out any of United's players for praise. It was clear at times that his confidence is still low: after all, he entered Wednesday's game having scored just four times in 27 appearances, and his appearances this season have been sporadic at best.

The 33-year-old out them in front in the 65th minute, lashing home after Leonardo Bonucci's pinpoint cross.

There's an expectation that a club like United should get through in the Champions League every season and it looks as if they are going to qualify for the last 16.

The Champions League match between Juventus and Manchester United will be broadcast live on TNT. "We played with that spirit and we scored two goals like this".

Mourinho was on the receiving end of taunts from Juventus fans during his side's 1-0 defeat in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford in October. "We stick together through the hard times and the good and we win games like this, and it puts us on a high".

"Shake the manager's hand, go over and clap your fans".
