Scorers: Alan (BRG) 2', 20', Javier Hernandez (MU) 25', 75', Jonny Evans (MU) 62'
Quickie recap: Manchester United stormed back from an early two-goal deficit to avoid what would have been a stunning upset on home soil. Chicharito scored twice, including the winner, and Evans grabbed his first goal at Old Trafford.
Where it leaves them: United lead Group H with nine points from three matches. Braga are third with three.
Rested defenders: United manager Sir Alex Ferguson gambled by resting first-choice defenders Patrice Evra and Rio Ferdinand ahead of this weekend's Premier League showdown at Chelsea. With Chris Smalling and Phil Jones still recovering their fitness after injuries, midfielder Michael Carrick was pressed into service at center-back.
Playing from behind: Alan's early goal meant United had fallen behind for the eighth time already this season, a run that includes four of their last five matches.
Up next: The same two teams meet again Nov. 7 in Portugal.
