Result: Galatasaray 0-2 Braga

Galatasaray fall to their second Group H defeat in as many matches despite dominating Portuguese Braga in Istanbul tonight.

Goals either side of half-time from Ruben Micael and Alan Silva earned Braga their first points of the Champions League season as they beat Galatasaray 2-0 in Istanbul tonight.

The hosts, who also lost their opening Group H fixture to Manchester United, had the better of the early action, with both Emre Colak and Umut Bulut sending shots narrowly off target.

Burak Yilmaz continued the Galatasaray pressure, firstly grazing the crossbar with a free kick before heading over from Albert Riera's cross.

Braga took the lead against the run of play, with Micael prodding home after Ruben Amorim's initial strike was parried by Fernando Muslera.

Despite falling behind, the Turkish giants continued to dominate both possession and chances, with Yilmaz again heading wide.

The forward was in the thick of the action all night and brought a smart save out of Braga stopper Beto, who also denied another Yilmaz header in the second period.

Another counter-attack goal secured the result for Braga as Silva converted an injury-time cross from summer signing Eder.
