Italian champions Juventus took a major step towards qualification for the first knockout stage in this season’s Champions League after they secured a 1-0 win over Premier League giants Manchester United in a Matchday 3 clash at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
Argentine forward Paolo Dybala proved to be the hero for the Old Lady.
The former Palermo star scored the only goal of the game in the 17th minute.
Man United (4-3-3):
David De Gea 8
The Spanish international goalkeeper made some fantastic saves to keep his side in the game.
Ashley Young 5
He failed to adequately deal with the threat of Cristiano Ronaldo on his return to the team.
Victor Lindelof 7.5
The best Manchester United defender by miles. One of his best games in a Red Devils’ shirt.
Chris Smalling 5
The England defender failed to get to grips with the Ronaldo-led Juventus attack.
Luke Shaw 5
He has definitely had better games for Manchester United this season.
Nemanja Matic 4.5
Failed to shield the defence in the face of constant Juventus pressure.
Paul Pogba 6
The midfielder tried to get things going against his former club but failed.
Juan Manuel Mata 4
Failed to make any meaningful impact
Anthony Martial 4
He was well marshalled by Joao Cancelo
Marcus Rashford 4
Part of an ineffective front three for Manchester United.
Romelu Lukaku 3
Had a very poor game as he got little out of both Juventus centre backs, Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci.
