We kick off our derby day gallery with man-of-the-moment Mario Balotelli, who defied the opinions of a couple of pundits to turn it on when it really mattered. But anyone who’s watched him closely in recent weeks already knew that he’s in prime form – although everyone in sky blue turned in a stellar performance.
Mario got the ball rolling with this sublime finish.
A few people tried the all-new "Mancini dance" before normal service was resumed.
The disbelief and joy was contagious, and it spread over to City Square where there was a minor outbreak of Poznaning.

They were handing out scarves laced with chloroform as the goals literally rained in during the closing stages.
Every picture tells a story.
