Braga 1 – Manchester United 3

UEFA Champions League play here between one of Portugal’s best and the EPLs top of the table. Braga gave it all. They played great for a majority of the game. But they couldn’t stop the late onslaught.

Braga stood ahead. Taking the lead half way through the game. Getting a goal from Alan not long after the restart. Nice penalty into the net.

But three late goals make it seem like Man U was comfortable. Not so. They won but it was hard fought.

Robert van Persie started in the 80th with the equalizer. Wayne Rooney added the penalty to put them ahead. And Javier Hernandez added one literally off his back. Within 13 minutes, they completely changed the sheet.

Fiesty Goats they are.

It went dark for part of the game. That helped to turn the tide. And get the Red Devils a win. They win the group. It wasn’t pretty but they will move forward.
