Bayern Munich react to untimely Cristiano Ronaldo suggestion on Twitter

Bayern Munich's players will be watching with envy tonight as Real Madrid take on Atletico Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals.

A collection of refereeing blunders saw the Bavarians crash out at the quarter-final stage two weeks ago, with Los Blancos running out 6-3 winners on aggregate.

Not only were two of Cristiano Ronaldo's three goals in the second leg offside, but Arturo Vidal was shown red for a perfectly timed tackle in the 86th minute.

What made Vidal's dismissal all the more comical was how Casemiro produced four tackles worthy of a booking throughout normal time but avoided yellow on every occasion.

As we know, Real went on to beat 10-man Bayern in extra-time thanks to controversial goals from Ronaldo (2) and Marco Asensio.

Carlo Ancelotti's men might not even want to tune into tonight's game as a result. If anything, it should be them playing against Atletico for a place in the final.

Their manager perfectly summed up their frustrations after the game when he reportedly confronted the referee and sarcastically told him "good game".

"In the quarter-finals of the Champions League we have to use referees of a better quality," Ancelotti told reporters in a post-match press conference.

"Today, the referee has not had a good day, and there are decisions of his that have hurt us a lot - the red card for Vidal, two goals from Cristiano which were offside.

"I spoke to the referee after the game. I said to him: 'Good job'."

Bayern are clearly still bitter about the manner of their Champions League exit judging by their recent activity on social media.

Ahead of Real's semi-final against Atletico, Twitter has suggested Bayern to follow none other than Ronaldo in a hilarious but unintended reminder of what he did to them two weeks ago.

And in response, the Bavarians' official account screenshotted the unfortunate suggestion and posted it online with the caption: "Really, @Twitter?! 😠"

Ouch. As if getting knocked out by two offside goals wasn't bad enough, Twitter has given Bayern an untimely reminder of what happened 24 hours before the semi-final.

And just to further compound their misery, their post has 23k retweets and 20k likes.

It's not all bad for the German giants, though, who are 10 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga following their crushing 6-0 win over Wolfsburg on Saturday.
