Top news: Man Utd 4-1 Basaksehir: Bruno Fernandes shines as hosts to Champions league last 16

Match ended with a result as Manchester United move to within a point of qualifying for the Champions League last 16 with victory over Istanbul Basaksehir by 4-1; Bruno Fernandes scored two (2) and Marcus Rashford add one (1) to hosts into 3-0 lead at half-time; Dan James added late fourth goal after Deniz Turuc free-kick.

Bruno Fernandes scored twice and appeared to give up the chance of a hat-trick from the penalty spot as Manchester United avenged their defeat to Istanbul Basaksehir earlier this month with a convincing 4-1 win at Old Trafford.

Fernandes' rocket goal scoring that set United on course for victory (7) had flashbacks to Paul Scholes' strike against Barcelona in this competition at the semi-final champions league stage back in April 2008, while his second of the evening was a tap-in after Basaksehir goalkeeper Mert Gunok flapped at a cross (19).
