      Victory for the Swiss champions, whilst Man Utd also pick up three points and Valencia draw

      Young Boys produced a sensational comeback win on Saturday, beating their current closest challengers for the title, second-placed Thun 3-2.

      Juve's next and final 2018/19 Champions League group stage opponents came back not once, but twice at the weekend, first going a goal down in the 39th minute to Thun's Marvin Spielmann, before Miralem Sulejmani levelled in the second half. However, Kevin Bigler put the away side back in front 12 minutes later, which saw the visitors leading until the final 10 minutes. Miguel Rodrigues put through his own net in the 84th minute to level the scores at 2-2, and then in the 90th minute former France international, Guillaume Hoarau scored to complete the comeback.

      The Bianconeri's challengers for top spot in the group, Manchester United hosted Fulham in the Premier League and found themselves 3-0 up at half-time thanks to goals from Ashley Young, Juan Mata and Romelu Lukaku. A second half penalty Aboubakar Kamara in the 67th minute gave the visitors a glimmer of hope for a comeback, but they were soon dashed when Andre Zambo Anguissa picked up a second booking, before Marcus Rashford finished the job in the 82nd minute to make it a comfortable 4-1 win.

      Valencia claimed a dramatic last-gasp draw at the Mestalla against Sevilla, who were leading the game since the 55th minute through Pablo Sarabia, but in the 92nd minute Mouctar Diakhaby popped up with a late goal to end the match honours even at 1-1.
