Ronaldo scores but Man United stun Juve with two late goals

Juventus 1-2 Manchester United

Juventus 1-2 Manchester United

"If we draw (the gap) is nine (points) and if we lose, it's 12", he said.

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo played down the significance of his team's loss to Manchester United in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Guardiola is wary of a dogged United, though, after Mourinho's side came back from a goal down to beat Juventus in Turin.

"In handsome Italian they insulted me for 90 minutes", he told BT Sport.

Juan Mata leveled with an 86th-minute freekick before a last-gasp Alex Sandro own goal earned United a dramatic victory, rekindling memories of its come-from-behind semifinal triumph at Juve in 1999, when the English side went on to lift the trophy.

"We shouldn't have given away those freekicks.it was the only way United was going to score", Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri said.

"We are top of the group, we're a good team, but it's a long way for the final". I think that is untouchable but what is behind [the scenes] I can not say.

The striker has missed the last two games with a muscle problem but has returned to training and could be included in the squad for Sunday's derby.

A jubilant Mourinho made the most of the last-gasp victory, going onto the pitch at full-time and cupping his ear to jeers from the crowd, who had earlier cheered former Juventus player Paul Pogba on his return to Turin.

"If the answer is positive, he's ready but in this moment I can only say he trains with the team, I don't know his answer".

City are two points clear of Chelsea atop the table and nine better off than United ahead of the derby.

"You saw what happened when they came to our place last season, and we went there [Old Trafford] and won as well".

"But, in this moment, I have only to think about football, and to think about football is just to think about Manchester City as a football team".

"We are going to try".

"I didn't celebrate when we went 2-1 up, it felt too unusual".

"We are going to try, I can not say we are going to be successful in our motivations, in our desire, but we played two hard matches away against two very good teams in Chelsea and Juventus and we managed to get good results and even if the good results were not in our pockets the performances were there, the positive attitude was there".
