"He said that in the first 20 minutes, before they scored the first goal, that we were the better side and he asked for us to continue to play like that - the first 20 minutes. But I respect Juventus, their players, the manager, the quality they have".

"They are a fantastic team with an awesome record at home". Hopefully, we can win. They have more potential than us.

Pep Guardiola's Premier League champions finished 19 points ahead of United last term, and City will get another chance to exert their authority over their local rivals this weekend.

Juventus let slip a 1-0 lead when Juan Mata struck a superb free-kick in the 86th minute, before Alex Sandro diverted the ball into his own net with a minute of normal time left.

It was the 121st goal in the competition for five-time Champions League victor Ronaldo who Juventus are counting on to help them lift their first European title since 1996.

Manchester United will now switch their focus back to Premier League affairs and their crunch clash at Manchester City on Sunday.

"You can't even talk about luck, because you have to find your own luck and in this case we just gifted it to them".

United still have two important games to come against Valencia and Young Boys to seal secure passage through to the knock-out stages of the Champions League.

"If we draw the gap is still nine points, if we lose it's 12, so I don't think that is the way to look at the match". "That Cristiano Ronaldo goal was attractive and the player [Leonardo Bonucci] that made that lovely pass, is a central defender!"

Mourinho also claimed United have "one final to play" if they want to get through.

It didn't take a lot to convince Ashley Young.

"The game was really top and I think we perform at a high level".

Former Manchester United defender Ferdinand was very impressed by the performances of a number of Red Devils stars, and he paid particular praise to Martial after the final whistle on Wednesday night.

'A point or three would've changed little for Juventus, but three points makes a big difference to us.
