It’s important to start with a victory.”He added: “It was important for us to win, because probably, I just said probably, every team is going to make six points against Young Boys.“So, it was important for us not to waste points today, but now we have three consecutive matches, two against Juventus and one against Valencia and it is in these matches where we must get the points to qualify and of course, they are two very good opponents.”United now led Group H on goal difference from Juventus, who defeated Valencia 2-0 at the Mestalla.last_img read more
