Galatasaray vs Manchester United LIVE!

Manchester United have it all to do to secure their place in the last-16 of the Champions League after another night of frustration. The Red Devils led 2-0 and 3-1 during an epic six-goal encounter with Galatasaray in a wet Istanbul, only to be held to a potentially costly draw that leaves their hopes of progressing out of their own hands and hanging by a thread.

United's only possible route through to the knockout stages now involves them beating dominant Group A winners Bayern Munich at Old Trafford on matchday six next month, while also hoping that rivals FC Copenhagen and Galatasaray play out a draw in Denmark on the same night. While not impossible, it is a very tough task and leaves Erik ten Hag's side relying on favours from elsewhere.

Alejandro Garnacho and Bruno Fernandes fired the visitors 2-0 ahead inside 18 minutes on Wednesday, while they later led 3-1 after Scott McTominay's goal after the interval. However, two crucial errors from goalkeeper Andre Onana at Hakim Ziyech free-kicks proved costly before Kerem Akturkoglu's emphatic equaliser.

That could well be it for United's Champions League last-16 hopes.

They led 2-0 and 3-1 tonight, but still could not get the win.

They are still alive, just, but won't be if FC Copenhagen spring a big shock in Munich later on.

They now need to beat Bayern themselves at Old Trafford on December 12 and hope that Galatasaray and Copenhagen draw in Denmark on the same night.

Wednesday 29 November 2023 18:16 , George Flood

29 mins: The hosts pull one back!

It's very poor from Onana, who inexplicably takes a little step to his left and then can't shift back quickly enough as Ziyech's free-kick curls around the wall and flies in.

He should never be beaten in that fashion on his side. Why did he move?!

A long hour ahead for United now...

Anthem played, pre-match pleasantries exchanged... it's time to get underway at a very wet Rams Park!

Gala in their familiar red and orange home strips tonight.

United, meanwhile, are in white shirts and red shorts with white socks - not sure if I've ever seen them in that combination before.

Jose Maria Sanchez Martinez of Spain is tonight's referee.

We are off and running in Istanbul...

Wednesday 29 November 2023 17:42 , George Flood

Some huge Tifo work on display from the home fans ahead of kick-off at Rams Park, including the famous 'Welcome to Hell' message.

This is going to be a major test of United's character in so many ways, with such high stakes against the backdrop of this horrid weather and hostile atmosphere.

Will they rise to the challenge and keep their Champions League last-16 hopes alive?

Wednesday 29 November 2023 17:38 , George Flood

Final preparations at Rams Park, where the rain is still hammering down and the wind swirling with less than 10 minutes to go until kick-off.

Such difficult conditions to play in. This game should have a lot of intensity but will surely struggle to be a classic!

Ten Hag: It's Manchester weather... we are used to it!

Wednesday 29 November 2023 17:23 , George Flood

Ten Hag backs United stars to cope with hostile reception

Wednesday 29 November 2023 17:18 , George Flood

Another typically ferocious welcome for the United players as they head back out to warm up.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference on Tuesday, Erik ten Hag backed his stars to deal with the hostile atmosphere that awaits them tonight.

"We know we can (win away in Europe) and we are confident," Ten Hag said.

"The last games away from home in the league were also very hostile environments. We played very well. We were very calm and composed.

"This team also last year in Barcelona (in the Europa League did well), so we know how to deal with it and I'm sure it will be tomorrow a confident team on the pitch.

"You have to stay calm in your head and don't get too emotional. You need the emotions but you have to control it.

"That you don't give them anything, that you don't give the referee as well at that moment that they're going to take, so you have to stay away from such moments.

"We know how to deal with it. You have to play confident and you have to make it your game, so it's not that important how the opponent is playing.

"It's important how we are playing, how we are dealing with possession, how we are dealing with out of possession, so normal stuff. We will make a good plan but then, at the end of day, the players have to decide, they have to manage the game."

Wednesday 29 November 2023 17:06 , George Flood

You could already hear that famous Galatasaray reception as United's players went out to look at the pitch a little while ago.

There is guaranteed to be a raucous atmosphere at Rams Park tonight, regardless of the weather.

Three Galatasaray changes as Zaha starts

Injured former Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez is replaced at the back by Abdulkerim Bardakci, while ex-Manchester City left-back Angelino also starts ahead of young Kazimcan Karatas.

Chelsea loanee Hakim Ziyech is also preferred to Baris Alper Yilmaz in attack.

Gala's squad features several more recognisable ex-Premier League faces, including Tottenham loanee Tanguy Ndombele, who lines up in midfield alongside ex-Arsenal man Lucas Torreira.

Ex-Crystal Palace and United forward Wilfried Zaha, who scored in the hectic 3-2 win at Old Trafford last month, also starts.

There are early whispers on social media that the fit-again Rasmus Hojlund and Antony both start for United, along with Sofyan Amrabat.

Wednesday 29 November 2023 15:48 , George Flood

Here's a little look at the state of the pitch at Rams Park, where the torrential rain hasn't stopped.

Huge splashes and loads of surface water, with the ball being held up. Not good at all.

Galatasaray vs Man United prediction

Wednesday 29 November 2023 15:39 , George Flood

Galatasaray are no pushovers - just ask United themselves - and their fans will make it as tough as possible. A team as consistently underwhelming as United may not have the required nous to pull off a result.

A draw would not be the end of the world for either team, but Galatasaray have the firepower required to breach United's wobbly backline and spell the end of their knockout hopes.

Galatasaray to win, 2-1.
