Manchester United Vs Juventus (LIVE UPDATES): Ronaldo, Pogba face former clubs

Ronaldo vs Pogba
Ronaldo vs Pogba

Two top players, Paul Pogba and Cristiano Ronaldo, will literally be seeking the downfall of their former clubs tonight.

Manchester United playing host to Juventus at Old Trafford in one of the Match Day 3 games of the UEFA Champions League and the star attractions are indeed Pogba and Ronaldo.

Interestingly, both players owe their former clubs a lot as far as their football careers are concerned; but they are not expected to be so emotional and not deliver for their present teams tonight.

Already, both Pogba and Ronaldo have promised that they would not do the usual celebration if they score tonight.

Both United and Juventus recorded draws during the weekend in their domestic leagues. While that seems like a possible result tonight, either side will equally fancy their chances of winning outrightly.

Manchester United have faced Juventus 12 times in total (W5 D2 L5), more than they have faced any other team in European competition. So it is safe to say this is a fixture involving familiar foes.

That said, this will be the first meeting between Manchester United and Juventus since the second group stage of the 2002-03 Champions League – the Red Devils won both games (2-1 at home, 3-0 away).
