United stun Juve, City win big

The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Sport -

PARIS. — Manch­ester United pro­duced a stun­ning late come­back to beat Ju­ven­tus 2-1 on Wed­nes­day night in what could be a turn­ing point in their Cham­pi­ons League soc­cer cam­paign, while a Gabriel Je­sus hat-trick helped Manch­ester City all but se­cure a last-16 berth.

Pep Guardi­ola’s City crushed Shakhtar Donetsk 6-0 on a night which saw Real Madrid also win big, as Bay­ern Mu­nich closed in on a place in the knock­out stage.

Ju­ven­tus were within sec­onds of con­firm­ing their spot in the last 16 af­ter Cris­tiano Ron­aldo put them ahead in Turin with a su­perb vol­ley in the 65th minute.

The hosts had al­ready hit the wood­work twice be­fore that and should have been out of sight be­fore Juan Mata equalised from an 86th-minute free­kick. — AFP.
