  • It's all over here and United win 3-1 despite trailing up until the last ten minutes. It wasn't the most convincing of performances but it is more than enough to secure their place in the knockout rounds of the Champions League.

  • Braga give the ball away cheaply in their own half and United set up an easy chance with good work from both Valencia and Rooney. Hernandez recieves the ball with the simple task of finishing but almost ruins it by trying to walk it into the net. He loses control but is able to finish it eventually when Braga can't clear. Scrappy goal in the end.

  • GOAL! Hernandez makes it 3-1!!

  • Final change for Braga as Ze Luis replaces Elderson.

  • Braga try to create an opening but stall on the edge of the area and Rooney steps in to nick the ball off Mossoro.

  • De Gea confidently drops his shoulder to free up some space under pressure from Eder.

  • Double change for Braga as Viana and Amorim are replaced by Mossoro and Barbosa.

  • It was Coelho's challenge on Rooney which persuaded the referee to point to the spot. It was Giggs' lovely chipped ball into the box which caused Braga problems to begin with.

  • GOAL! Rooney calmly places the ball into the top right corner, sending Beto the wrong way. It has not been pretty but United now lead after once again coming from behind.

  • Penalty for Man United!

  • Braga attempt to respond and Alan crosses well but Douglao fouls Smalling as he tries to win the ball in the air.

  • Beto makes a bizarre decision to come off his line as United pump the ball forward to van Persie. The striker can't believe his luck when he turns to see an open net and he finishes cooly. All square now. Can United go on to win now?

  • GOAL! Van Persie scores! 1-1.

  • A dangerous counter attack from Braga but Eder is unable to connect with Salino's low cross into the six yard box.

  • Rooney has a shot which deflects behind but United are unable to make the most of the corner. Braga not even under much pressure here, a dissappointing performance from the visitors.

  • Evra tries a one-two with van Persie on the left flank but the Dutchamn's return ball sees Braga take hold of possession.

  • Valencia gets the better of Elderson and squeezes a good cross in but Beto rises unchallenged.

  • Nani is replaced by Rafael, with Valenica likely to push further up the right wing.

  • Elderson loses control on the left wing and is penalised for holding onto Valencia's shirt. Nani looks like he is going to have to come off.

  • Custodio is booked for blatently holding back van Persie. Silly foul.
