Man Utd snatch comeback win over Braga
Manchester United survived some early defensive mishaps to beat Braga 3-2 and maintain their 100% Champions League record this season.
A United defence featuring Michael Carrick gave up a goal after just two minutes, Alan outmuscling Alexander Buttner easily to nod home at the far post. And the Brazilian added to the visitors' advantage, rifling in after Eder had beaten Carrick and cut the ball back across the area.
United responded rapidly, Javier Hernandez burying Shinji Kagawa's cross at the back stick following fine approach work from Robin van Persie. The comeback was complete when Jonny Evans stabbed the ball over the line in a messy fashion, with Braga having failed to clear a corner properly.
Hernandez's second of the evening put the seal on the turnaround, the Mexican striker peeling away at the far side of the area to meet Tom Cleverley's deep centre.
