Schalke's official Twitter delivered some great posts during 7-0 defeat to Man City

Schalke's team after losing 7-0 to Man City

Manchester City versus Schalke was viewed as a mismatch even before a ball was kicked.

However, in the first-leg of the last-16 tie, the out-of-form German outfit gave Pep Guardiola's side quite the fright.

Two penalties from Nabil Bentaleb saw them lead 2-1, but the Citizens eventually won 3-2 with 10-men thanks to goals from Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling.

But at the Etihad last night, Schalke well and truly confirmed the gulf in quality between the two sides right now.

City ran out 7-0 winners, with goals coming from Sergio Aguero (x2), Sane, Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus.

Schalke managed just two efforts on goal all night.

The Bundesliga side's away support was fantastic, but Domenico Tedesco and his players were hapless.

And Schalke's official English-speaking Twitter account decided to see the funny side of it all, posting some rather entertaining tweets during the match.

We've selected some of the best for you, but we also recommend scrolling through their entire feed from last night as well.


Tedesco & Guardiola

During proceedings, Gary Lineker tweeted: "At this rate Schalke might lose as heavily as our Prime Minister."

It wasn't 243-0, thankfully and Schalke were quick to reply.

The German club wrote: "I'd like to see Theresa May try and defend against @LeroySane19." Well played, Schalke.

City's six and seventh goals of the evening also received a humorous reaction from the admin, which you can view below.

"Please tell me this is all a bad dream," Schalke wrote. Sadly, it wasn't.

To cap off the evening, the admin then thanked the brilliant away support, before apologising for the team's performance.

A nice touch to end a humiliating night in Manchester.

City will go into Friday's quarter-final draw as one of the big favourites to win the competition alongside Barcelona and Juventus.

At this point in time, who would bet against Guardiola's men?
