SC Braga responded to defeat on UEFA Champions League matchday one with victory at Galatasaray AŞ, courtesy of goals from Rúben Micael and Alan.
Rúben Micael's 27th-minute strike and Alan's simple finish in added time got the Portuguese side off the mark in Group H, with the Arsenalistas standing firm in the face of prolonged second-half pressure from the Turkish league leaders. Bottom of the section after their second loss, Galatasaray have it all to do ahead of the visit of CFR 1907 Cluj in three weeks.
The match went the way we wanted. In the first game we had 35 shots and couldn't manage to score, but this time it was the opposite. It was a great victory.
Ruben Amorim, Braga midfielder
We absolutely dominated the match. Unfortunately, we conceded from their first dangerous opportunity. We had controlled the game until the 27th minute.
Faith Terim, Galatasaray coach
