Matic: Mourinho knows how to stop Man City

Juventus 1-2 Manchester United

Juventus 1-2 Manchester United

It's not possible in November, they've already showed they can recover. "And especially there is always a lot of negative comments about us but hopefully they might say something positive for once, because I think we deserve it, the team deserve it, the manager deserves it for getting this fantastic result. But I don't think they think it is an easy match for them". I'm learning things from him, that's for sure.

Dybala wasn't the only player to talk after the match. After the goal we had five minutes to wake up again. "But we still have two matches which will allow us to finish first". It is a big victory for us, not just because we needed the points but because it was away from home against an unbelievable team.

"A team has good and bad moments and this moment they have confidence". We had to come and not feel inferior. "We have to control the ball more and be clinical". "Everybody knows their ambitions".

Chris Smalling then secured the 3-2 win by converting from Alexis Sanchez's free-kick, putting City's title celebrations on hold and forcing them to wait another week to confirm their third championship in seven seasons.

"We have one final to play at home against Young Boys".

"There's always a feeling of revenge any time you lose against any team", the defender told Sky Sports.

Allegri added: "It leaves a bitter taste in the mouth, but we can't win all the time".

Juventus sits atop Group H, two points ahead of United.

Sami Khedira and Paulo Dybala both hit the woodwork before five-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo brought the capacity 41 470 crowd to their feet when he hammered home Bonucci's long pass from just inside United's half.

Earlier this week Mourinho learned that he could still face a domestic touchline ban following alleged misconduct after United's game against Newcastle in October.

Not to mention Alex Sandro brutally nutmegging Jesse Lingard.

It was Juve's first loss in any competition this season. "It's true they are the favourites because they are in unbelievable form but this is Manchester United and you never know what can happen".

It was the eighth goal this season for the 33-year-old who arrived from Real Madrid in July in a deal estimated to cost 340 million euros in total over four years, on top of the 110 million-euro transfer fee. "And I think even if this game hadn't ended with victory I would have the same feeling that the team played really, really well from the first minute against a super team".
