Mata, Protagonist again!

Juan scored United’s fifth goal against Galatasaray (5-2). He came in on the second half and was very active. He has scored once and has given two assists this pre-season.

On the 74′, an excellent combination between Carrick and Mata closed the final score against Galatasaray at the Ullevi Stadium of Göteborg. Juan manouvered with quality at the side of the rival box and gave the ball to Carrick who approached by the right wing. Michael returned the ball at once and the Asturian, in a sharp way, scored at Muslera’s goal.

The action was the final 5-2 against the Turkish. It was also Mata’s first goal on United’s pre-season. The Spaniard has scored one goal and given two assists in three games with the Red Devils. Among Mourinho’s substitutions, Juan had to wait until the 67 minute to get into the pitch. Since that moment and until the final whistle, he was very active. He was moving constantly throughout the playmaker zone but he was also playing on the wings and contributed to the making of good plays from behind.

The rest of the goals scored by ManU were performed by Ibrahimovic, Rooney (two) and Fellaini. United’s next meeting will be this Wednesday against Everton, a match in which they will tribute Rooney. It will be the last test before the Community Shield against Leicester.
