Manchester City's Twitter account will never learn. Two weeks after they tweeted it would take "something special" to beat Joe Hart against Bayern Munich (a minute later he was beaten by Jerôme Boateng's deflected shot off Mario Götze) Francesco Totti embarrassed them.
Totti, until last night, had not scored on English soil for Roma, which City were keen to point out prior to the Champions League game...
The banter backfired when Totti capitalised on Hart's slip to dink the ball over the goalkeeper and earn Roma a deserved draw at Eastlands.
City have one point from two ahead of their double-header with CSKA Moscow.
89. Diving save from Hart to deny Jerome Boateng who tried his luck from distance. Take something special to beat Joe on tonight's form— Manchester City FC (@MCFC) September 17, 2014
