Fernandes’ brilliant form continues.
Fernandes’ goals helped the Red Devils race into an early lead against Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League group stage tie.
Bruno Fernandes goal.
The Portuguese midfielder opened the scoring with an incredible half-volley. The home side won a corner through Alex Telles, who took the subsequent kick.
Basaksehir defender Alexandru Epureanu headed the ball clear and it rolled towards Bruno Fernandes at the edge of the penalty area.
The Man United midfielder struck the ball first-time on the half-volley and watched it fly past every other player on the pitch and into the top corner of the net, giving the goalkeeper no chance.

Bruno got his second goal of the night a few minutes later, giving Man United a commanding lead over their Turkish opponents.
This goal owed more to a goalkeeping error than another moment of genius by Fernandes. But the Portuguese midfielder was on hand to tap the ball in.
