  • The other game in the group ended Braga 0 Cluj 2. United go to Cluj in the next set of matches on October 2. Thanks for joining us tonight.

  • All over and United have scraped home with a 1-0 win thanks to Carricks' seventh-minute goal. But Galatasaray had two penalty shouts turned down, hit the woodwork twice and forced De Gea into some good saves. They can count themselves unlucky to leave without a point.

  • At the other end, Hernandez tries a spectacular volley but the effort is well over the bar.

  • Another Gala penalty appeal is turned down. Very similar to the one in the first minute - Evans takes a heavy touch and then appears to catch Yilmaz as the Turk tries to nick the ball away. The ref waves play on but Gala are furious and rightly so it would seem. United fortunate again there.

  • Nani surges forward and his pass finds Hernandez, onside, in the box. He tries go past the keeper and shoots. The effort appears to beat Muslera but Nounkeu is there to block the goalbound effort.

  • There will be five added minutes, the fourth official signals.

  • Eboue needs treatment but eventually comes back onto the field.

  • Eboue in pain again after a tussle with Welbeck. Looks like a clash of knees.

  • Valencia ends a fine run on the right with what appears to be a dive in the penalty area. Nounkeu may jut have caught him, the replay isn't conclusive. Either way, the game continues.

  • Substitute Hernandez shoots past the near post after a good move involving a lay-off from welbeck and a good through ball from Nani.

  • United make their final change. Danny Welbeck comes ofor Kagawa, one of their better performers this evening.

  • The two Yilmaz's fail to combine as Gala's latest attack fails. Their challenge could be fizzling out now.

  • Colak tries to cross from the left but it's a poor one and goes behind for a goal kick.

  • That's your lot, Robin. Fergie gives him the hook with Javier Hernandez coming on. Not before time really.

  • Van Persie's bad night goes from bad to worse. He's booked for bringing down Elmander.

  • There's also a change for the visitors - Aydin Yilmaz replaces Melo.

  • Here's the change. Fletcher is back after 10 months out. No surprise to see Scholes come off.

  • It looks like Darren Fletcher will be coming on shortly for United.

  • Van Persie finds Kagawa who has a shot blocked. Seconds later the ball is knocked into the Dutchman in the box but again he can't control to get a shot off.

  • United have another chance to put the game to bed but blow it. Kagawa does well to set up the attackm finding Nani who drives on. He picks out Van Persie in space but his control is dreadful and the chance is gone. That sums up his night - the worst I've seen him for some time.
