Manchester United defeated Villarreal in a stunning Champions League comeback on Wednesday evening at Old Trafford.
United struggled throughout the first half, but some outstanding David de Gea stops kept the score at 0-0 at the break.
Villarreal, on the other hand, eventually made their dominance count when Paco Alcacer scored after 53 minutes.
United, on the other hand, responded brilliantly, restoring parity seven minutes later.
Alex Telles was picked out on the outside of the area by Bruno Fernandes, and the Brazilian unleashed a fantastic volley that hit the corner of the net.
Cristiano Ronaldo then caused a commotion inside Old Trafford by scoring the game-winning goal with the game’s last kick.
Jesse Lingard set up the famous Portuguese attacker inside the box, and he finished with aplomb from close range.

The goal came as a great relief to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who would have had to answer some harsh questions if they hadn’t defeated their Spanish opponents.
His response to Ronaldo’s winner has been captured on video by fans, and it is amazing.
After the goal, the Norwegian manager turns around and fist pumps. He is then greeted by Telles, who had just been substituted off, and the two celebrate together.
Mike Phelan joins them later. It makes for a nice video, which you can see here.

You love to see that sort of passion.
The Norwegian manager was ecstatic when discussing his side’s win after the game.
“It’s massive for the players,” Solskjaer said, per Eurosport. “To win games in this fashion after we lost a game in that fashion in Berne [against Young Boys] is great. I’d rather have a win and defeat rather than two draws.
