Welcome to hell: Manchester United’s notorious introduction to Galatasaray from 1993 has a new twist. Back then, it was an away goals defeat in Istanbul that knocked United out of the Champions League, their players knocked about by the local constabulary during a post-match fight in the tunnel.
Here, it was a continuation of the agonies of the season, Erik ten Hag’s players doing plenty to raise the hopes of their fans. In particular Rasmus Højlund, who twice put United in front, his second a beautiful mix of pace from the halfway line and composure in front of goal.
