Burak Yılmaz delivered the goods in the UEFA Champions League yet again for Galatasaray AŞ, heading in the only goal of the game versus Manchester United FC as Fatih Terim's team consolidated second place in Group H.
The Turkey striker – who has now scored all five of Cimbom's European goals this term, including a hat-trick against CFR 1907 Cluj last time out – powered in Selçuk İnan's corner eight minutes into the second half. Galatasaray's first continental home win in almost three years means they need only match CFR's result on matchday six to qualify for the last 16.
My team played with a fighting spirit. I congratulate them from my heart because if they hadn't played like that then it wouldn't be possible to beat Manchester United.
Fatih Terim, Galatasaray coach
The temperament was good and I thought we put up a reasonable show but when you concede from a set-piece you are always under pressure.
