(Video) Rashford sets up Hojlund to score after lethal attack against Galatasaray

A super goal from Rasmus Hojlund opens the scoring for Manchester United against Galatasaray in the Champions League.

The goal itself it exactly what you want to see from a counter attacking team. It’s exactly what you want to see from your midfield, star forward and new centre forward.

Casemiro picks out a wonderful pass from deep in midfield which stuns the Galatasaray defence. The Brazilian midfielder picks out Marcus Rashford down the right, on the opposite flank to the one he prefers, and the England international puts it on a plate for Rasmus Hojlund.

VAR checked Rashford’s run but saw no problem with it, so Hojlund’s goal was given.

It’s two in two for the young Danish striker in the Champions League since he joined United.

A fantastic goal.

Sadly, Galatasaray have since equalised to make it 1-1.
