United drew (0-0) in Sevilla in the first leg of the Champions League. Mata played most of the game and was ovationed by local fans when he was replaced. Juan played his 40 game in the continental competition (he has a record of seven goals and 13 assists).
The Red Devils were defeated (1-0) after missing a few chances. Mata played the second half and created danger from set pieces. The next challenge will be in the FA Cup next Saturday 17 February against Huddersfield.
The football magazine rewards Mata with the ‘Antonin Especial’. This is the first time this award is given at the Panenka Gala. “I want to thank the magazine for this prize. It makes me proud”, said Juan.
