Iličić scored against Manchester United

The match between Atalanta and Manchester United of the Champions league was held on the 2nd of November at the Gewiss Stadium (Bergamo)

Josip Iličić opened the scoring with a low effort that squeezed under David de Gea at a vociferous Gewiss Stadium and Atalanta thought Duvan Zapata's 56th-minute effort had won it.

At 2-1 down, United were sitting third in the group and facing the prospect of going out if they lost to Villarreal in their next fixture, but now a win would see them through with one game to spare.

Ronaldo has scored in each of United's group games, netting crucial winners, and once again showed his desire to rescue his side with an instinctive volley that found the bottom corner in the 91st minute

Atalanta - Manchester United 2:2 (1:1)
