Bayern Munich recorded one of the biggest victories in Champions League history last night, smashing Italian outfit Roma 7-1 - but that didn't stop their social media team taking the time out to mock a rather embarrassing faux pas from West Brom.
The German giants were on fire at the Allianz Arena, roaring into a 5-0 lead after just 36 minutes against their stricken Italian opponents, before completing the romp in the second half through goals from Franck Ribery and Xherdan Shaqiri.
It was the emergence of the former that prompted Munich to aim a sly dig at West Brom over their embarrassing tweet on Monday. The Baggies were leading Manchester United 1-0 at the Hawthorns at half-time when manager Louis van Gaal summoned Marouane Fellaini from the substitutes bench.
"Ouch, that was a low blow! Would be good to have you back. Come up and join us sometime. :-)." - West Brom Twitter account to Wolves
West Brom tempted fate by mocking the impending arrival of Fellaini - only for the much-maligned Belgian international to score his first ever goal for Manchester United to level things up almost immediately.
Fast forward two days and in the midst of Bayern's romp as Ribery emerged from the bench the German giants couldn't resist a small dig aimed at their Premier League colleagues.
They posted: "Sub coming up: #Ribery has taken off his tracksuit, fortunately he has an #FCBayern strip on underneath. #ASRFCB 'FCBayernLive".
To make matters even worse for West Brom, Wolves got in on the action with their own mocking tweet during their game against Middlesborough in the Championship - although the Baggies didn't take it lying down. They responded to their midlands rivals: "Ouch, that was a low blow! Would be good to have you back. Come up and join us sometime. :-)."
Bayern's win means they have a 100% record in the Champions League after three games, while they are top of the Bundesliga table too.
Manchester United aren't in this year's edition of the Champions League after recording their lowest ever Premier League finish under David Moyes last season.
