Soccer – Mourinho keen to build on shock win

Manchester United warmed up for Sunday's crunch derby clash against Manchester City by coming from behind to defeat Juventus 2-1 in the Champions League. Former United star Cristiano Ronaldo had given Juve the lead in Turin but Jose Mourinho's team equalised when Juan Mata scored with a sublime free-kick before a goalmouth scramble resulted in Alex Sandro scoring an own goal. Mourinho said afterwards: "We are growing and have lots of players that are inexperienced. They have seven titles and now with Ronaldo they want to win the Champions League. "They are stronger than us, with great qualities and a golden bench. In my opinion we played a match which deserved an equaliser, but we went on to win." United are 33/1 with bet365 to win the Champions League this season and 8/1 to beat Pep Guardiola's side this weekend.
