As if knocking Chelsea out of the Champions League for the second consecutive season wasn’t enough, PSG have taken to Twitter to rub salt into wounds.
The French side progressed into the quarter-finals after Adrien Rabiot and Zlatan Ibrahimovic both struck to secure a 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge.
It was the same scoreline that the Laurent Blanc’s side had beaten the Blues three weeks ago in Paris, meaning a fairly comfortable 4-2 result on aggregate saw them through.

But PSG weren’t satisfied with doing all their talking on the pitch and their social media team got involved in the celebrations.
Their official Twitter page posted a picture of the players celebrating their progression with the Britney Spears inspired word: “Oops… We did it again.”

Very cheeky, indeed.
Of course, “again” suggests the side have done this before - and they did - 12 months ago at this very stage.
Last season, Chelsea managed a 1-1 draw away from home and after 90 minutes it was the same scoreline in west London.
But a Thiago Silva goal six minutes from the end of extra-time cancelled out Eden Hazard’s penalty meaning PSG progressed on away goals.
But they didn’t stop there. If you have quick look on their Twitter feed, you will find numerous vines and memes that the club have retweeted from delighted fans using the hashtag #MerciParis to celebrate their victory - they clearly enjoyed last night.
With the Blues having very little chance of qualifying for next season’s tournament, at least they will be glad that PSG can’t make it three years in a row that they’ve knocked them out and troll them once again.
But, this mocking of Chelsea wasn’t the only time PSG have been a bit cheeky on social media to their Champions League opponents.
In the build-up to the second-leg, they labelled Chelsea striker Diego Costa a ‘fraud,’ including him in a vine with super heroes.
It was always going to be a risky tactic before a big match. And it looked a though Costa may leave them extremely red faced when his equaliser on the night hauled Chelsea back into the tie.
However, Ibrahimovic’s second-half winner meant that the marketing team in Paris could breathe and start planning their next method of teasing Chelsea.
But the PSG Twitter team aren’t the only ones Chelsea fans will be angry with.
They vented their fury at Eden Hazard after he swapped shirts with Angel di Maria at half-time. It may not have been too much of an issue of the Belgian had produced a half-decent performance but, like most of this season, the midfielder was fairly anonymous during the 77 minutes he was on the field.
