Manchester United star, Bruno Fernandes dazzled on Tuesday night as he netted a first-half brace to inspire his side to hammer Istanbul Basaksehir 4-1 in the Uefa Champions League.

Pitted in Group H of this season’s top-tier European inter-club competition, the English Premier League giants surprisingly lost on Matchday 3 against the Turkish opponent before the last international break.

Determined to exert their supremacy on Istanbul Basaksehir in the reverse fixture today, Manchester United manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer fielded a strong team with Bruno Fernandes leading the team from midfield as the key man.

The Portuguese did not disappoint and scored after just 8 minutes of action to give the Red Devils the lead when he fired a first time shot from the edge of the box of the opponent.

Ten minutes later, Bruno Fernandes capitalized on a mistake from Mert Gunok to fire in his second goal of the match in sensational fashion.

In a match where the star midfielder played 59 minutes, he finished as the top-rated player, earning a rating of 9.1 from top statistics providers SofaScore.
