Manchester United 2-1 Villarreal Highlights

Manchester United 2-1 Villarreal Highlights

Twenty-four hours after Lionel Messi’s stunning first goal for PSG lit up the Champions League, Cristiano Ronaldo wrestled back the headlines as his stoppage time winner gave Man United a much-needed three points at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

Having lost their group stage opener to Young Boys, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were staring at a second successive defeat after Paco Alcacer gave the visitors a deserved lead soon after half-time.

Alex Telles struck back with a magnificent volley from Bruno Fernandes’ clever free-kick, but United were still facing the prospect of sitting bottom of the group after a third of the fixtures had been played.

However, Ronaldo, who had been quiet all evening, popped up at the back post in the 95th-minute, firing home to send Old Trafford into a state of pandemonium.
