Champions League: Juventus vs. Man UnitedPublished November 7, 2018 by Sol FH
Juventus in excellent form ahead of Group H thriller, but will Jose Mourinho be able to work some magic. Kickoff at 20:00 GMT.
The second night of Group Stage Matchday 4 of 6 gets underway across Europe, but all eyes will be in Turin to see Christiano Ronaldo face his old team for the second time. In their previous meeting at Old Trafford, Juventus reigned supreme with a 1-0 win led by a goal from Paul Dybala in the 17' minute. Juventus is firmly in first place in Group H, with three wins and nine points, and, playing at home tonight is almost a sure thing.
Ronaldo led practice last night with some low-intensity drills, fighting through rough autumn weather, but nothing too severe. Juventus looks relaxed and sharp, far superior to Man U. In fact, the Red Devils will need a miracle to walk away with the win tonight.
The opening half has been a serious weak spot for United in their more recent matches. Still early in League play to tell, but they are in seventh place currently with a 6-2-3 record, and Mourinho needs to do something drastic to turn things around.
The first match was dominated by Juve. United took a deep defensive line attempting to force play close to each defenseman, but that strategy against a fast and accurate team like Juventus is terrible. Ronaldo scores goals just as easy as drinking water, and they completely outnumbered United in the all over the pitch.
