Dybala’s lone goal helped Juventus beat Man United at Old Trafford

Manchester United suffered their first Champions League defeat after losing 1-0 to Italian League side Juventus at Old Trafford on Tuesday, October 23.

Dybala's lone goal helped Juventus beat Man United at Old Trafford

Paulo Dybala opened scoring for the visitors in the 17th minute after benefiting from a Chris Smalling’s weak attempt to clear Cristiano Ronaldo’s cross from the left flank.

The Old Lady got the game off to a pressing start after Marcus Rashford fouled Alex Sandro in the first 60 seconds of the game.

Jose Mourinho’s men finally made an attempt in the game through a Juan Mata’s cross, but it went straight into the hands of Wojciech Szczesny after taking few minutes to settle into the game.

The defeat now means that the Red Devils remains second on Group H table with four points after winning their first and drawing their second group games respectively.

Despite enjoying the full compliment of their fans, United were not confident in front of goal as they were only able to record two shots on target.

Meanwhile, they will hope they can return to winning ways when they travel to Turin for the second leg of the meeting in a bid to reach the second round of the competition.

In the other Group H game, Young Boys held Valencia to a 1-1 draw in one of the early kickoffs at the Stade de Suisse Wankdorf.

Akahi News recalls that Juventus recorded a 3-0 win over Young Boys in their UEFA Champions League encounter in Turin.

The absence of Cristiano Ronaldo for the meeting played no negative role as they cruised to convincing victory over their guests.

Argentina forward Paulo Dybala grabbed a hatrick to ensure the Biaconeri maintain their 100% start to the UCL this term.
