Galata upset in “Old Trafford”! – At the top, “toppling” Copenhagen, Bayern


The… overthrow happened (also) to 1st group of Champions Leaguein the context of the 2nd competition.

Of course, eyes turn to “Old Trafford”where the Galatasarai left with a great “double” (2-3)! What if he found himself twice behind in the score by the awesome and terrible Hoywood. What if he missed a penalty with him Icardi. The Turkish team persisted, used it too red of Casemiro and with the Argentinian forward… refereeing, he plunged the “red devils” even more into introspection.

Thus, the whole of Okan Burun climbed to 2nd place with four points (after the home draw with Copenhagen in matchday 1), being in -2 from Bayern Munich.

For their part, for the same group, the Bavarians found it more than dark in their hot home Copenhagen. Nevertheless, those with the “double” also left (1-2) with reversal.

The “qualification” case for United that remains is getting tougher without a degree and which welcomes Copenhagen (1b.) the following matchday.

1st group

Manchester United-Galatasaray

At Old Trafford, United took control from the start of the match. He started to create moments and found the back of the net 17′! THE Rashford spilled in from the right, stepped into the area and lifted for him Hoywoodwho with a header-“cannon” defeated Muslera for the 1-0.

A goal that forced Galata to move up the pitch. Indeed, the whole of Okan Buruk began to threaten. Yes, the answer was immediate! Specifically, at 23′ The Sanchez with a deep fill he found him Zaha inside the opposition area, with the 30-year-old forward putting his body in front of him superbly Dalot and make the shitty shot, for it 1-1.

The “red devils” came out strongly in the second half. The main exponent of their attacks remained o Hoywood.

And if in 59′ the great goal of the Danish forward was disallowed – correctly, for offside – the same did not happen in 67′. In fact, his energy was even better! The 20-year-old Norwegian took the ball from the cross, carried it to the opponent’s area and stung for the 2-1.

Despite this, Galata was unyielding, she started the counterattack and this time it was complete!

In the 71′ the guests deployed an exemplary attack, they played vertically and in combination, with Artukoglou to ideally complete the phase for the 2-2.

Galata now had the momentum, having put a lot of pressure on Manchester United! Another mistake this season for him Onana where in 76′… laid on Icardiwhom he knocked down before executing o Casemiro, with the Turkish team winning the penalty shootout. The Brazilian midfielder faced her redthe Argentinian forward took charge, but missed.

Another misguided attempt by him Icardi in a penalty shootout within a few days. But he didn’t take him down. Barely. In the 81′after another one of his balls Sanchezpoured into the counter, stepped into the area and hung Onana for the 2-3! The celebrations, as was normal, were wild from the players, the bench and the away crowd.

In the remaining minutes, United tried to save everything that could be saved, had important opportunities, but failed to score again, with 2-3 remaining until the final.

Copenhagen-Bayern Munich

Without many good moments in the first half in Copenhagen. On the contrary, in the second both teams forced. Something that was also reflected in the score.

First to find nets (1-0) the hosts, at 56′ with his crap shot Lerager.

A goal that woke up the Bavarians. Thomas Tuchel’s side started to create important chances, equalizing (1-1) originally in 67′ with its trailing finish Musiala.

In the 83′ came the total upheaval, when the newcomers Mueller and Final combined, with the former going on the counter, stepping into the area and breaking to the latter, who crossed hard for 1-2. A score that remained until the finale. Something to which the terrible intervention by Ulreich in the 95′when he blocked an own goal by Tsoupo-Moting with a terrific throw.
