Champions League: Manchester United 2-3 Galatasaray

Manchester United have lost their second game in a row in the Champions League, humbled by a Galatasaray side that won a frenetic match 3-2 at Old Trafford.

Iran PressEurope: In a lively first half, Rasmus Hojlund put United ahead with a bullet header from a Marcus Rashford cross. The visitors were level just six minutes later when Wilfried Zaha overpowered Diogo Dalot to scuff a loose ball past Andre Onana.

A brilliant run and finish from Hojulnd restored United’s lead, only for an equally fine finish from Kerem Akturkoglu to pull Galatasaray level a few minutes later.

A mistake from Andre Onana forced Casemiro into conceding a penalty. Casemiro was red-carded, and Mauro Icardi smashed his penalty wide of the post. Icardi redeemed himself minutes later, with a cool finish over Onana to seal a memorable victory for Galatasaray.

Manchester United face an away trip to FC Copenhagen on the next match day, whilst Galatasaray will host Bayern Munich.
