Video: Man Utd battle to 2-1 Wolfsburg victory but Juan Mata gets the plaudits after insane assist

Whilst the MOM award and winning goal was claimed by their towering inform centre half Chris Smalling, Manchester United fans went doolally over Spanish playmaker Juan Mata’s absurd assist during Manchester United’s 2-1 Champions League win over Wolfsburg.

Mata in fact already added his name to the score-sheet much earlier on from the penalty spot, leveling things up after the Bundesliga side took a shock 4th minute lead. Just 8 minutes into the second half the former Valencia and Chelsea midfielder back-heel flicked the ball over the top of the opposition defense – right into the path of Smalling who dispatched with ease.

Here it is in all it’s shiny glory.
