Thursday’s UEFA Champions League draw placed serial Serie A winners Juventus in the same group as Manchester United, meaning the two football titans will battle it out to progress to the next stage of the prestigious and lucrative tournament.
They will first meet at Old Trafford on October 23, before clashing again in Turin on November 7.
Furthermore, despite sending Argentine forward Gonzalo Higuain on loan to AC Milan, Juventus has no shortage of other players capable of netting goals, including the likes of Paulo Dybala, Douglas Costa and Mario Mandzukic.
In any case, fans have taken to social media to mock Man Utd's early season performance, expecting them to be annihilated by Juventus.

Ronaldo vs this Man Utd defence? Lmaooooo— General Atopa (@wofa_slayzie) August 30, 2018
Earlier in his career, Ronaldo played for Man Utd, often being deployed as a winger, before he moved onto Real Madrid, enjoying unprecedented levels of success in European football, including three consecutive Champions League titles.
Ronaldo has already scored against former team Man Utd in a previous Champions League game, back in 2013.
In a shock move, he decided to transfer to Juventus shortly after the 2018 World Cup, for over $100 million.
