Rodrigo also expressed his delight at scoring his first goal in the Champions League, with his 25-yard left-foot strike setting the tone for the game. “It was very special for me to score my first goal in the Champions League. At that moment we were struggling because they are a great, great team.”

Rodrigo’s performance was crucial to Manchester City’s victory, and his words after the game demonstrate the team’s focus and determination to continue their success in the competition. The next leg promises to be another exciting match, and fans will be eagerly anticipating the outcome.
