United shocked in Turkey
Manchester United sit in pole position of Group H following a strong start but the pool remains competitive and Solskjaer won’t allow his players to get carried away. The Red Devils impressed in their opening two games, beating PSG and RB Leipzig. Having seemingly done the hard work, beating their main rivals for a place in the next round, Man Utd suffered a shock loss in Istanbul last time.
Despite being the away team the Premier League side were strong favourites to continue their winning ways in Turkey but returned home having lost 2-1. Since that defeat, the home team have scored back-to-back league wins, beating Everton 3-1 at Goodison Park and West Brom 1-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Istanbul hoping to do the double
Istanbul knew they were up against it when qualifying for the Champions League and being dropped into a group with Manchester United, PSG, and Red Bull Leipzig. The Turks couldn’t have imagined a tougher group and fans were left fearing an embarrassment when seeing their side suffer defeat in their opening two matches.
Istanbul did pick up their first win of the campaign and it came against all the odds when beating Man Utd 2-1 on matchday three. Goals from Ba and Visca was enough to better a reply from Martial on 43 minutes and they were able to hold on to that lead in the second half. It may have been a shock result, but Istanbul were fully deserving of their win.
