'The goal of the season' - Man United coach praises Garnacho's third minute bicycle

Manchester United’s Champions League hopes are hanging by a thread after Erik ten Hag’s men imploded in a chaotic, thrill-a-minute 3-3 draw on an ear-splitting night at Galatasaray.

Having lost three of their four Group A fixtures, the Red Devils knew defeat in Istanbul would extinguish their hopes of reaching the knockout phase with a game to spare.

United avoided a loss but blew a two-goal lead on in an incredible night in Istanbul, meaning their knockout hopes will be over if Copenhagen beat Bayern Munich in Wednesday’s late fixtures.

This was a wild, helter-skelter encounter befitting of a Champions League campaign punctuated by goals, madness and mistakes.

Reaction from Owen Hargreaves

Owen Hargreaves speaking to TNT Sports: “United scored three in Munich and lost, three in Copenhagen and lost and three again here and didn’t win.

“If you had said before [those games] that you would score that amount of goals, no one would ever have believed you. They are scoring enough goals but making mistakes which are costly in the Champions League.”

FT Galatasaray 3-3 Man Utd

Scott McTominay has scored four goals in all competitions this season for Manchester United already exceeding his goal tally from last season (3).

Sadly his strike was not a winning one tonight.

Full-time! Galatasaray 3-3 Man Utd

90+3 mins: A late corner for Manchester United could be the last chance for them to score. Bruno Fernandes puts it into the box but Torreira nods it clear.

Mainoo swings it back in and again the hosts clear their lines. A third crossing effort picks out McTominay who nods his chance wide of the target.

That’s the end of the game. Manchester United let a two goal lead slip and have to settle for a draw in Turkey. That’s probably not going to be enough to get them through the group.

They’ll need to beat Bayern Munich in their next game in order to make it into the Europa League as a bare minimum.

Galatasaray 3-3 Man Utd

90 mins: Oh may days.

Dalot is slipped into the box on the right. He takes a touch and pulls the ball back. Torreira fails to clear it and the ball drops to Pellistri.

He shoots but hits the goalkeeper who clings onto the ball.

Three added minutes to play.
