Uefa Champions League: Man United Star Wins Man Of The Match Award

Cristiano Ronaldo's record-breaking Champions League appearance was capped by a spectacular late comeback win for Manchester United over Europa League final opponents Villarreal.

The sides met again just four months after the Red Devils' penalty shoot-out loss to Unai Emery's side in Gdansk, with the Red Devils looking to avenge their shock defeat against Young Boys in the Group F opener.

When Paco Alcacer deservedly put the Spanish outfit ahead, a disjointed United were staring down the barrel of a third straight home defeat in all competitions.

On the night he broke Iker Casillas' all-time Champions League appearances record, Alex Telles' stunning goal gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side hope, and Ronaldo secured a 2-1 victory in stoppage time, sending Old Trafford into raptures.

David De Gea was named the man of the match after his impressive performance against Unai Emery's Villarreal according to the poll conducted on ManUtd.com, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side could've easily conceded 4goals in the first half but, the Spanish goalkeeper kept Manchester United in the match with his crucial saves.
