Istanbul Basaksehir coach Okan Buruk says Bruno Fernandes was the difference for defeat at Manchester United.

Fernandes scored twice for last night's 4-1 Champions League triumph.

"When we look at the numbers, the numbers of the two teams are close to each other. The player who made a difference in the game was Bruno Fernandes. Today, we should also count the Cavani factor.

"They made more pressure in terms of their attack. There is a goal we had early. We did not start the match well. We changed the game system. We went to the opponent's goal after 3-1. Maybe we could catch 3-2 and enter the match.

"They scored early goals. The player who made the difference was Bruno Fernandes. We did not start the game very well, but after a certain minute we found feet."
