Andre Onana made two huge mistakes in the Manchester United vs. Galatasaray match in Istanbul in the fifth Champions League group game.

Those errors gave the Turkish champions a 3-3 draw and left Man United’s hopes hanging by a thread.

The Cameroon goalkeeper already created errors against Bayern Munich away and Galatasaray at home this season.

Last night, Man Utd twice had the game won at 2-0 and 3-1 up, but they just got one point at the end of the day.

Erik ten Hag’s squad are anchored to the bottom of Group A with one round of fixtures left.

Need more bad news? They will face Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich for their final match.

Manchester United have conceded 14 goals in their five UCL games this season. Statistically speaking, only Royal Antwerp has conceded more goals than Onana.

Despite the harsh banner that read “Welcome to hell” from Galatasaray fans, United managed to score two goals in the first 20 minutes.

First, it was Alejandro Garnacho who smashed his finish into the net and made a “calma, calma” celebration in front of the home crowd.

Then in the 18th minute, captain Bruno Fernandes launched a rocket into the top corner from 25 yards.

United should’ve won the games as Onana should’ve saved two of Hakim Ziyech’s free-kick goals.

At that Champions League match final whistle, Onana stood on the pitch and had to be consoled by his backup Altay Bayindir.
