A 17th tap in by Argentine, Paula Dybala handed the Old Ladies of Juventus a maximum 3 points on the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to the Old Trafford.
The Italian champions totally dominated the first half of the game as they had 73% of the ball as against 27% by the homeside. Cristiano Ronaldo himself was involved in the build up to the goal as his low shot from the right side of attack was bloked by Chris Smalling only to fall at the feet of clinical Dybala who pounced on the opportunity to put the visitors ahead.
Manchester United however came back stronger in the second half but failed to break through the well-composed Juve defence led by Leonardo Bonnuci. The game then ended 1-0 in favor of the Azzuri which takes their tally to 9 points and 5 points clear off Man Utd who lie 2nd with just 4 points out of 3 games.
