Whilst Jose Mourinho bemoaned the gap in quality between the sides, singling out Ronaldo and his team-mates as examples of the calibre of player needed at United.

"In the other side was huge quality and sometimes when we speak about quality sometimes people look for Cristiano, (Paulo) Dybala, (Miralem) Pjanic," he told BT Sport.

"But in a top team you have to look to (Giorgio) Chiellini, (Leonardo) Bonucci and I think Juventus is this kind of team that when the are in front is very, very difficult to concede a goal.

"I think our attacking players, things were not coming, but everybody tried, everybody was strong mentally to try until the end. Juventus felt it and instead of the control they had in the first half, in the second half they defended."
