Manchester United vs Juventus
Uefa Champions League 2018/19
Venue: Old Trafford
Date: Tuesday, 23 October
Kick-off: 8pm BST
Manchester United welcomes Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford, as José Mourinho faces another big test against the Italian champion Juventus.
Ronaldo returns to Manchester amid accusations that he sexually assaulted a woman in the United States in 2009, an accusation that the former Old Trafford forward vigorously denies.
The 33-year-old Portugal international is available after completing a one-match suspension after a red card against Valencia, and Mourinho’s defense, out of the ordinary this season, will be tasked with stopping the top scorer the season in the Champions League.
The two sides have met 12 times in Uefa competitions, each of which wins five games and shares two draws.
The last time they met in the Champions League was in 2002-03, with United beating Juve 2-1 at home and 3-0 in the second group stage.
United fans will also fondly remember the dramatic semi-final comeback in Juve en route to lifting the 1998-99 Champions League trophy to complete the 3-pointers.
The game will be broadcast live by BT Sport 2. BT Sport subscribers will be able to broadcast the match online through the video player and the BT Sport application.
