(Watch) Man Utd score two late goals against Juventus force 2-1 comeback

First, it was Juan Mata’s free-kick that saw Manchester United on level terms in Turin. 

A brilliantly struck free-kick swerved past the Juventus wall and into the back of the net to hand United a very important equaliser with 5 minutes of normal time remaining.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring against his former club after the hour mark, which forced United manager Jose Mourinho into making changes.

One of the three substitutions included Mata, who stood up to take a quality free-kick to stun the home support.

United had also brought on Marouane Fellaini and Marcus Rashford, who both made impacts of their own in the lead up to the all-important equalising goal.

But United didn’t stop there…

United scored a second minutes later which appeared to be an own goal by Alex Sandro.

What a night. And what a win!
