Andreas Pereira: 'Manchester United pumped up for Juventus clash'

Gonzalo Higuain moved to Milan on loan in August 2018 after two seasons at Juventus shortly after the Turin side signed Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo scored but wasteful Juventus had to settle for a 1-1 stalemate at home to Genoa to end the Italian champions' ideal start to the season on Saturday.

United's next game is a Champions League match against Juventus at Old Trafford and Young is optimistic about coming away with three points.

"But we have to take the positives from the game and I think the way we played in the second half especially, we were fantastic at times".

Ronaldo will return to Manchester United with Juventus aiming to fire the Serie A giants to a third consecutive Champions League victory.

Lionel Messi is next best on 389.

Krzysztof Piatek, who has been in fine form this season, almost equalised with a long-range shot in the 55th minute but Wojciech Szczesny kept it out.

In an attempt to stifle Genoa as they scented an equaliser Allegri replaced Juan Cuadrado with Douglas Costa, the Brazilian winger making his first appearance since a four-game ban for spitting.

However, Daniel Bessa equalised with a header, from Christian Kouame's cross.

Allegri introduced Paulo Dybala off the bench and both he and Miralem Pjanic fired narrowly wide from distance, but Genoa withstood the late pressure to move 10th in the table and give Napoli the chance to close the gap to the leaders. Earlier, Roma suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to SPAL courtesy of an Andrea Petagna penalty and a Kevin Bonifazi header either side of the break.

SPAL, who came a highly respectable 13th in Serie A following promotion last season, went ahead with a slickly-converted Andrea Petagna spot-kick on 38 minutes.

Ronaldo's only outing against Mourinho's United was in the 2017 UEFA Super Cup, featuring for seven minutes as a substitute in Madrid's 2-1 win.
