Demba Ba found the back of the net on a historic night for İstanbul Başakşehir in the Uefa Champions League on Wednesday.

The hosts opened the scoring through the Senegalese forward, who ran onto a clearance before finishing past Dean Henderson in the Manchester United goal, and doubled their lead thanks to more poor defending in the 40th minute as Edin Visca powered home from close range.

Anthony Martial pulled a goal back before the break but the Red Devils couldn’t find a second as the hosts held on to claim their first ever Champions League win.

Ba, 35, joined the Istanbul club in January 2019 and scored 13 goals in 28 matches to help them to their maiden Turkish Super Lig title last season.
