In an important match to continue hoping to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League, Bruno Fernandes scored a wonderful goal (18) to give Manchester United a break against Galatasaray. The Portuguese has already been an incisive passer for Garnacho.
In less than 18 minutes, Bruno Fernandes got Manchester United back on track. With their backs against the wall before facing Galatasaray on day five of the Champions League group stage, Manchester United were able to rely on their Portuguese captain to get off to the perfect start.
An assist and a golazo
From the 11th minute, Bruno Fernandes advanced to support Rasmus Hoglund, who returned the ball to him at the entrance to the penalty area. In the process, he served up attacking midfielder Alejandro Garnacho and the Spaniard finished from the left flank to give the Red Devils the advantage.

After a controversial situation inside the penalty area, where the referee did not blow the whistle for Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes did not need practically anyone to score the second goal (18th). After a touch and pass from Luke Shaw, the 29-year-old built more ground before taking his chance. His right shot fell into Fernando Muslera’s right corner.
Hakim Ziyech gave hope to his team (28th place) with a free kick, which he helped block two of his teammates, including Mauro Icardi. Andre Onana was at fault with a low shot.
As a reminder, before the match, Erik Ten Hag’s team was in last place in its group with three points, compared to four points for its competitor today and Copenhagen, the other competitor for qualification. In this first group, Bayern Munich achieved an impeccable performance with four victories, and thus will witness the round of 16.
