Borussia Dortmund Expertly Trolls Paris Saint-Germain After Champions League Semifinal Victory

PARIS ― After beating Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, Borussia Dortmund got the better of the French club on social media as well.

Dortmund celebrated Tuesday’s semifinal win by rubbing a bit of salt in PSG’s wounds with a tongue-in-cheek message posted on social networks on Wednesday. The German team posted an image of a hot air balloon in Dortmund’s yellow-and-black colors flying over a beach where a PSG towel is spread out on the sand.

Written across the image was the French phrase for “Enjoy your vacation.”

The message was a response to PSG’s tweet after beating Barcelona in the quarterfinals, which featured an image of a hot air balloon in the Spanish team’s colors sinking in the Seine river in front of the Eiffel Tower.

Dortmund won 1-0 in the second leg for a 2-0 aggregate victory that left big-spending PSG still searching for a first Champions League victory. Mats Hummels scored the only goal of the second leg at the Parc des Princes to give Dortmund a chance to secure a second Champions League trophy after winning in 1997. Dortmund also reached the Champions League final in 2013, losing to Bayern.
