Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has said his team’s first defeat of the season, came at the best possible time.
Ronaldo gave his team the lead in a Champions League clash against former club Manchester United on Wednesday.
But Juve still dramatically lost 2-1, after late goals handed the Premier League side the points.
The Serie A leaders, who next play at AC Milan on Sunday, had won all three of their previous matches in Europe and 10 of 11 in the league.
“It’s never nice to lose, but maybe this defeat comes at the best possible time,” Ronaldo said.
“We have a great team, we’re top of the group and I’m sure we’ll go through as group winners.”
