The match was played in heavy rain which did have an impact on playing conditions but Galatasaray were able to pull through and record a memorable win.

The rain made the game almost unplayable late on in the second half with the ball hardly moving due to the water on the field.

Baran Demiroğlu scored the winning goal for Galatasaray with a one-touch finish after just 11 minutes.

This win gives Galatasaray 6 points in the group, while Manchester United remain on 4 points.

In the other match of the group, Copenhagen will face Bayern Munich at 6 p.m. United will be out of the competition if Bayern win their game today.

The Galatasaray first team take on United in the Champions League Group A match day 5 clash today at 17:45 GMT.
