VIDEO: Magic Mata assist sets up Smalling to put Man United ahead


Manchester United dragged themselves in front against Wolfsburg in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday and Juan Mata was at the heart of it.

Mata drew United level with a penalty kick in the first half and then in the 53rd minute he produced a moment of magic to help them go ahead.

The ball found its way to him on the edge of the box and he carved open Wolfsburg’s defense with a cheeky flick from his back heel. That set up Chris Smalling inside the six-yard box and the center back poked United into the lead. 2-1.
