Rafael da Silva has boasted that he does not lose games at Manchester City, after Lyon won 2-1 in England.
Nabil Fekir and Maxwell Cornet scored in the first half and withstood a late onslaught from the host, after Bernardo Silva pulled one back halfway through the second half.
And Rafael, who has played in right back for Manchester United earlier in his career said he does not lose at City.
“Everybody knows I’m a United supporter. To come here to win at City – I’ve never lost here – is very good for me,” he told reporters.
“We know that if we play together we have a chance against any team. We have quality players, as you saw. We just need to play like this more often and results will come.
“I don’t know if they underestimated us. We played well. We had more chances to score goals.
“Maybe they thought… we are not very good in Ligue 1, you know. We’re not playing very good football.
“Maybe they looked at the videos and said ‘well, they don’t have good confidence’. I think we played really well.”
