Manchester City beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final clash on Wednesday evening and Ruben Dias was one of many players who impressed. Fans lauded his efforts at the Parc des Princes after he helped limit PSG to only one shot on target from open play.

The 23-year-old played his part in keeping Kylian Mbappe quiet on the night, stopping the French international registering a shot in 90 minutes. Only one City player made more tackles and clearances than Dias, but no player had more interceptions than the Portuguese international.

Where will Manchester City finish this season?

Against PSG, Dias played for 90 minutes, had 69 touches, completed 94.8% of his 58 passes, made three tackles, gave away just one foul, made two interceptions, won one freekick and made two clearances. The Portuguese international has made 48 appearances from a possible 54 this season, so he’s been indispensable to say the least.

Dias has transformed City in his debut campaign and improved players around him. John Stones has never looked better than when he’s alongside the 23-year-old and the Sky Blues seldom concede (24 goals conceded in 33 Premier League games and four goals conceded in 11 Champions League games), so he’s worth every penny.
