Manchester United 3-2 Braga, Old Trafford, Full TIme

In true Manchester United fashion, the Red Devils came from two goals down before establishing a second-half grip on their Champions League tie to go ahead against Braga, thanks to a goal in each half courtesy of Javier Hernandez.

Braga striker, Alan, ensured that the hosts didn't have an easy time with things, but scored what was ultimately a meaningless brace in the first 45 minutes.

That being said, United can still be wary of their trip to Portugal, where Braga will be striving to claim all three points in the reverse fixture.
