Turkish side, Istanbul Bakasehir, defeated Manchester United 2-1 in their Champions League group tie, to bring a twist to group H.

United entered the match leaders of the group, having beaten PSG and RB Leipzig. With hopes of solidifying their hold, after winning their first two matches, a poor defensive performance cost them dearly, and former Chelsea striker Demba Ba, who scored that goal from the famous Steven Gerrard slip, was at hand to stun United this time.

A clearance upfield finds Ba, in his own half, ahead of every single Manchester United player. Like he did in 2013, he runs alone to the edge of the box and slips the ball past Dean Henderson in the 13th minute.

Edin Visca sealed the win for the hosts in the 40th minute, although Anthony Martial got one three minutes later for Olé Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
