Two goals in four minutes gave United victory.

Cristiano Ronaldo believes Juventus should have beaten Manchester
United "easily" on a night when the forward's breathtaking volley counted for nothing.

After outclassing Jose Mourinho's men at Old Trafford a fortnight
ago in a win far more comfortable than the 1-0 scoreline suggested, the Serie A giants looked set to defeat them again.

Ronaldo's exceptional volley against his former side left onlookers
rubbing their eyes in disbelief – as did the late United comeback that would see the visitors seal a remarkable 2-1 win in Wednesday's Champions League encounter.

"I have seen the replay in the dressing room," he told Viasat.

"I didn't realise it was a fantastic goal, but I did good movement and I kick with the ball strong.

"I was happy for the goal but we are a little disappointed because we should have won the game easily, by three or four goals.

"Manchester, they didn't do much, in my opinion.

"They created two chances, set pieces, I know the English teams
they are always looking for the set pieces.

"But we will learn from our mistakes and we are still top of
the group so we are good."
