Following their massive 7-0 win over RB Leipzig in the Champions League, Manchester City defender Ruben Dias commemorated the victory with a post on Instagram.
In the post, Dias is pictured alongside Erling Haaland – who scored five of City’s seven goals against the German club on Tuesday evening.
For the post’s caption, the Portuguese defender wrote: “Good morning Cityzens! Hope you were entertained last night! Congratulations to @erling.haaland 👏🏼✋🏼 Important win and time to get ready for another final on Saturday.”
Currently, Dias’ post has over 70,000 likes on Instagram. Among those who liked the post include Joao Cancelo, John Stones and Chelsea midfielder Joao Felix.
Dias, along with the rest of the Manchester City team, were given major plaudits for their demolition job on RB Leipzig. As mentioned, Haaland bagged five goals – but he wasn’t the only standout performer. Ilkay Gundogan, Jack Grealish and Kevin De Bruyne were also superlative en route to the win.
Manchester City have never won the Champions League – this season, though, they seem to be in a very strong position to break this particular duck. There are several incredibly strong teams still in the competition – including Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Chelsea.
With there being no country protection in the remainder of the draw City could end up facing Chelsea who famously beat a lacklustre City side in the final in 2021 when Kai Havertz notched the winner to break Cityzens’ hearts again in the tournament they so badly want to win. If City are to win Europe’s biggest prize this summer, they will need to be on top of their game – but it is well within their ability to do so.
