I've been Aaron Hindhaugh and hope you enjoyed the late drama with me here on Vavel. Remember to check back tomorrow for our live report on Arsenal's Europa League fixture against Sporting Lisbon. 
On a night where Man United rode their luck a number of times and Juventus were sloppy in front of goal, it turned out to be a happy return to Turin for Paul Pogba, even if this wasn't his finest performance of the season.
The Man of the Match award is a difficult one as Man United didn't play that well over 90 minutes, but I'll have to go for Ashley Young as he kept Juventus quiet on their left-hand side and he set up the winner in the 90th minute.
Juventus remain top of the group on nine points and Manchester United move back up to second on seven points with two games remaining against Valencia and Young Boys respectively.
Manchester United just don't know when they are beat this season, coming from behind to beat Newcastle United, Bournemouth and now Juventus recently.
Juventus will be kicking themselves they haven't won that game with the chances they squandered including Khedira's shot off the post and Cuadrado's shot he blasted over the bar.
Mourinho causing controversy again as he held his hand to his ear to the Juventus fans which angered the Juventus players and has to be escorted off the pitch and down the tunnel.
Full-time Manchester United win in Turin.
94' Martial gets a yellow card for kicking the ball away, surely not long left now.
93' CHANCE Martial plays rashford through one-on-one with the 'keeper but he hits it straight at Szczesny
91' Final Juventus change as Cuadrado goes off for the big Croatian striker Mandzukic.
90' Man United once again have come from behind and put in a great second half performance.
Ashley Young whips in a wide free-kick that evades everyone and Szczesny gets a very weak and poor hand to the ball and pushes it onto Sandro and goes in.
Man United have snatched it right at the death.
89' GOAL
Juventus brought that on themselves by missing golden opportunities and going three at the back allowed Man United more room at wide which and invited the Red Devils onto them.
The free-kick was won by Pogba and taken by Mata who elegantly curls one into the top corner to level things up.
85' goal
85' Free-kick 19 yards from goal for Man United

72' CHANCE Cuadrado picks up the ball via a deflection and has Dybala free in the middle but decides to cut inside and feed in Pjanic who slices his shot wide.
70' Juventus deserve that lead as they have hit the post and the bar this game and have looked dangerous everytime they get near the Man United box.
69' First change for Man United as Saturday's match-winner, Marcus Rashford comes on to replace Jesse Lingard.
66' CHANCE Ronaldo cushions a ball into Pjanic's path but his shot is too close to De Gea who still gets a strong hand to push the shot away.
Ronaldo hit that volley so hard and with such precision that De Gea never had time to move to try and save it.
64' Pjanic plays an absolutely perfect ball over the Man United defence from the halfway line to play in Ronaldo who had peeled off the back of Lindelof and volleyed it first time past De Gea.
64' GOAL
63' Been a much quieter half with neither side being able to create an opening as the passing has turned sloppy.

49' CHANCE! Dybala finds space in the Man United oenalty area to turn near the edge of the area and bends one which leaves De Gea stranded but his shot cracks off the bar.
48' Martial tries to bend one into the far corner but drifts narrowly wide.
Both sides are back out for the second half, can either side find a breakthrough and claim all three points?
Standout players for both sides have been Dybala for Juventus as he has been so calm on the ball and bringing others into the game and Lindelof for Man United as he has won most things Juventus threw at him in that half.
United started the better of the two sides but Juventus have grown into the game and look very dangerous when they go forward.

36' Juventus really starting to grow into the game now and seem dangerous whenever they get the ball into Man United's half.

33' CHANCE! Cuadrado hits a shot and takes a wicked deflection and De Gea has to react quickly and nearly palms it back out into danger.

Team news for tonight's game is as follows
Stay with VAVEL UK for more live updates ahead of team news at 7PM and live commentary from 8PM.
Juventus haven't conceded in the Champions League yet this seaosn. United have looked weak this season. But it still could be a fantastic game with two brilliant attacks and one brilliant defence meaning Juventus are the favourites. 
Giorgio Chiellini and Federico Bernardeschi both missed Juventus' weekend fixture while Leonardo Spinazzola won't be involved due to a lack of match fitness. 
Lukaku's absence and Sanchez being in the side as a striker could help United against Juventus. It's likely Mourinho's men will mainly be earning chances through counter-attacks rather than dominating possession and the game. Sanchez is a far better player on the counter than Lukaku, with better pace and movement, and so that could play to United's advantage.
Jose Mourinho also won't be able to select Diogo Dalot, the young Portuguese right-back who joined in the summer. Also unavailable are Antonio Valencia and Marouane Fellaini. Other than that, United have a full squad to choose from.
United will be without main striker Romelu Lukaku on Wednesday night due to injury and it's likely that Alexis Sanchez will start up front for the Reds, as was the case on Saturday against Bournemouth in a 2-1 win.
Pogba also spoke about his future at Manchester United amid speculation he could make a return to Juventus, or make a move to FC Barcelona or Paris Saint-Germain: "Leaving Juventus was my choice: Juventus played in the Champions League and United in the Europa League. I have no regrets, United have always been at the top, I'm back to help United return to the top. Nothing has changed, I have made a choice and I have no regrets."
Pogba on Ronaldo: "Having Cristiano is always good for the team [Juventus], playing with great players like him, Messi or Neymar is always a pleasure.  I think he's happy to be here and I think it's a great thing for Juve to have a player who scores goals like drinking water." 
To that end, Juventus brought in Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid in the summer. United's star, Pogba, said that he thought "it was a great purchase by Juventus."
The Serie A side have won the title for the last seven consecutive seasons but the big-eared Champions League trophy is what they are really desperate for.
Juventus dominated United at Old Trafford in October. They are the best team to come to Manchester for some years. Despite only winning 1-0, the crispness of the passing, the speed of the movement and quality in and out of possession was a contrast to United's poor performance.
United will need the Frenchman to be in excellent form at his old stomping ground. They lack quality in midfield, and throughout the team, compared to this Juventus side which are arguably favourites to win the UEFA Champions League.
Pogba is returning to Juventus for the first time since leaving for United in August 2016. In the first fixture between these sides in the group stages, Pogba was quiet like everyone else playing in Red. He has, though, contributed 10 goals in 14 appearances for United this season, which is a world-class level of contribution from midfield
Mourinho hasn't really got an answer to the problem at United. However, the second half against Bournemouth was solid as Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba played well.
In Man United's last seven games, they've conceded seven and scored only two in the first half. In contrast, they've conceded only three and scored eight in the second half of those seven games.
At the weekend, it was a comeback victory for Manchester United, and not the first of the season. It was a great moment of celebration for the travelling Reds as Wythenshawe-born Marcus Rashford scored a 92nd-minute winner on the South Coast. However, it was another game in which Jose Mourinho's side looked poor at the start.
