Mata pin point free kick was the one thing that made manchester united fans to believe that they can win it late in Turin. It was another comeback from manchester united after being a goal down from a Cristiano Ronaldo volley in the second half of play but the final whistle had some thing. Different to say about the game.
According to mirror.co.uk report; Juan Mata's set-piece four minutes from time sent the visitors wild, but the best was yet to come as an Ashley Young free-kick was unwittingly bundled in at the back post by Juventus' Alex Sandro to give United a last-gasp win.
Super-sub Mata explained what he said for team-mate Young to temporarily relinquish free-kick duties ahead of United's leveller. Mata told MUTV:
“As soon as there was the free-kick in there, I had the confidence that I had to take it.
“I told Ash: 'Please let me take it, because I can go over the wall.'
“It's very difficult for the goalkeeper because they don't see a lot [with the wall so close].
“So I tried to do what I do in training a lot of times, practicing, practicing. It was important to score to make it 1-1 and, after, it led us to the 1-2.
"I think because of the venue and the importance of the game, it's one of the best [that I've scored].”
The 2-1 victory is United's latest memorable win in Turin and boosts their hopes of progressing from Group H to the knockout rounds.
Jose Mourinho would be the happiest of coaches this week, he added by saying :
"Probably when Manchester United had heroics here (in 2003), Manchester United was the best team.
"And they (Juventus) are a top team for many years now. They bought that player (Ronaldo), they want to win everything, they can win everything and we are a team where many of the players didn't play big matches like this in the Champions League.
"So, it is a different situation but it is a fantastic victory for us - a victory that is not just about the points we lost at home, it is about the feeling of how well we played.
"And I think even if this game doesn't end with a victory, I would have the same feeling that the team played really, really well from the first minute - I repeat - against a super team."
