Ronaldo saves Manchester United!
Manchester United won in extremis this Wednesday evening at the reception of Villareal. After an opening goal for the visitors by Alcacer, Telles equalized for the Red Devils. In addition to becoming the most capped player in the history of the Champions League (178 games in C1), Cristiano Ronaldo gave Manchester United an unexpected victory against Villarreal (2-1). The Spaniards dominated the game with many clear chances and the deserved opening of the score by Paco Alcacer (53th). But the Red Devils, without being brilliant, equalized on a superb volley of Alex Telles (60th), before the decisive goal of CR7 (90th+5)! A great relief for the United two weeks after their defeat in Bern (2-1).
Barça slapped again!
The situation of FC Barcelona becomes even more worrying. Despite their encouraging success against Levante (3-0) on Sunday in La Liga, the Blaugrana lost on the field of Benfica (3-0), on the same score as against Bayern Munich during the 1st day. A new nightmare evening during which the Portuguese opened the score in the 3rd minute thanks to Darwin Nuñez. The Catalans could have come back in the game but the striker Luuk de Jong missed the immanquable twice! And he was not the only Barcelona player to miss…
