A particular play that involved two Uruguayans occurred in the match between Galatasaray and Manchester United in Istanbul for a new Champions League date.

When the match was 3-3 (final result) and ninety minutes of play had elapsed, Pellistri (entered at 78′ for Garnacho) had a very clear action to score the winning goal for the English.

A play that moved from left to right ended at the feet of the Uruguayan team winger on the edge of the six-yard box to finish off a half-cleared clearance by Lucas Torreira.

The former Peñarol hit a strong shot and Fernando Muslera, his teammate with the Celeste in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, contained it with a block that was celebrated as a goal.

Torreira’s hug to the goal and the United player’s disappointment at not being able to take advantage of the opportunity closed the duel.

This home point allows Galatasaray, beating Copenhagen on the last date, to qualify for the round of 16 of the competition.
