Manchester United vs Juventus

All eyes would be on Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo as he makes a return to Old Trafford for the second time when his Juventus side take on Manchester United in a Champions League clash in Group H.

Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo attained legendary status at Manchester United after winning three Premier League titles, one FA Cup title and the 2008 Champions League title with the club before sealing a club-record fee of around £80m to European champions Real Madrid.

The 33-year-old forward returned to the Theatre of Dreams for the first time in 2013 when his Real Madrid side defeated Manchester United 2-1.

He will be making a second return to Manchester United with another team in the same competition.

Ronaldo is expected to spearhead the Juventus attack alongside Argentine forward Paolo Dybala in the absence of injured Croatia World Cup star Mario Mandzukic.

For Manchester United, manager Jose Mourinho is expected to make one change with Ander Herrera coming into the starting XI from the Chelsea game at the weekend in place of Marcus Rashford.

Probable Manchester United XI: David De Gea, Ashley Young, Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Ander Herrera, Juan Manuel Mata, Anthony Martial, Romelu Lukaku

Probable Juventus XI: Wojciech Szczesny, Joao Cancelo, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Alex Sandro, Rodrigo Bentancur, Miralem Pjanic, Blaise Matuidi, Paolo Dybala, Cristiano Ronaldo, Douglas Costa.
