Braga maintained their place on top of Group F in the as Ahmed Hassan ‘Koka’ scored a wonderful goal that helped beat French giants Marseille 3-2.

After a rather quiet first half, Braga pushed for the opening goal and duly got it; Koka caught Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda in no mans land to chip the ball delightfully over the French International’s head, seconds after the hour mark.

Koka celebrated tearfully as he sank to the turf, scoring just a day after losing his father. He was substituted soon after with an suspected knock, before Braga got their second goal with Wilson Eduardo slotting home to make it 2-0.

Marseille fought back as Roman Alessandrini whipped in a well-taken free-kick home to make it 2-1. Just minutes later, Marseille equalized as talisman Michy Batshuayi lost his marker to make it 2-2 in the late stages of the game.

Braga were not done however, and got a winner in the last seconds of the game as Allan pounced onto Mandanda’s poor attempt at a catch, before striking it home to give Braga a famous victory in the Europa League.
