FC København claimed their first victory of this UEFA Champions League group stage thanks to Daniel Braaten's early goal against Galatasaray AŞ.
Forward Braaten was the only player to score in a first half littered with inviting chances at either end, as København sought to avenge their matchday three defeat by the Turkish title holders. While the second period would be dominated by Galatasaray, Ståle Solbakken's team held out to join their vanquished opponents on four points in the Group B table, both one above Juventus.
I’m proud of the lads. We have improved a lot after a poor start to the season and now we can look forward to the last two matches in the group.
Lars Jacobsen, København captain
The result is bad and we never thought about losing. We have to learn how to not concede a goal. The only thing we have to do now is beat Juventus.
Roberto Mancini, Galatasaray coach
