Scholes: Manchester United only beat Juventus because they were complacent

Scholes: Manchester United only beat Juventus because they were complacent

At the end I didn't insult anyone, I just did the gesture that I wanted to hear them more.

The victory left Manchester United second in their Champions League group and just two points behind Juventus with two games left to play in the group stage. After the goal we had five minutes to wake up again. It's not the most important game for them tonight.

He headed home from a corner and wheeled away in celebration.

It was Juve's first loss in any competition this season.

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.

"You can't write us off easily".

Kittle led all receivers with four catches for 108 yards, while Mostert was the game's top rusher with 86 yards on seven carries. Dekoda Watson had 1 1/2 sacks in his first game of the season after getting activated from IR earlier in the day.

Former Manchester United star Ronaldo was seemingly not particularly impressed with the Red Devils' approach to the game and claimed that Juventus were clearly the better side on the night.

"And even if the good results were not in our pockets the performances were there, the positive attitude was there so we are going to try but Manchester City are a very powerful team".

The Premier League club were holding their own in Northern Italy on Wednesday night, until a sublime floated ball by Leonardo Bonucci dropped in behind the United defence and was volleyed home by five-time Ballon d'Or victor Cristiano Ronaldo.

After listening to taunts from the Juventus crowd for 90 minutes, Jose Mourinho couldn't resist paying back in kind.

Asked if he would have reacted like Mourinho, Allegri replied: "No, I leave the pitch immediately to avoid reacting".

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. You could argue they were a little bit complacent after the first game.
