Sir Alex Ferguson admitted he feared how Manchester United's patched-up defence were going to handle Galatasaray.
Ferguson's concerns were justified as United slipped to a 1-0 defeat thanks to Burak Yilmaz's second-half header.
It cost the Red Devils their 100% record in this season's competition, and means they have now conceded the first goal an incredible 12 times in 17 matches in both the Premier League and Champions League.
However, with 18-year-old Nick Powell hitting the bar on his first start, and Phil Jones making his first appearance of the season after back and knee problems, there were obvious plus points as well.
"We worried about set-pieces and that was the area we suffered," said Ferguson. "That was always going to be a problem considering the lack of experience and height.
"But otherwise it was a decent performance. Parts of the game were good and we handled the atmosphere."
