Edinson Cavani didn't join in mocking Erling Haaland after PSG vs Borussia Dortmund

Paris Saint-Germain v Borussia Dortmund - UEFA Champions League Round of 16: Second Leg

Paris Saint-Germain produced a brilliant comeback against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League fort he first time since 2015/16.

The French side went into the second leg trailing 2-1 but progressed after a 2-0 victory inside an empty Parc des Princes.

Neymar opened the scoring and decided to celebrate by mimicking Erling Haaland’s ‘zen’ celebrate, which the Dortmund striker did after scoring twice in the first leg.

Then, at full-time, the PSG players all did the ‘zen’ pose on the pitch.

Stay classy.

It’s since been revealed Neymar and his teammates were seemingly reacting to a fake social media post.

An apparent selfie Snapchat from the Norwegian wonderkid read: "My city, not yours" next to the word "PARIS".

It went viral before the second leg but it had been tampered with by a mischievous fan. Haaland doesn’t even have Snapchat.

That didn’t stop Neymar from posting on Instagram after the tie. The Brazilian uploaded a picture of him in the ‘zen’ pose with the caption ‘Paris our city, not yours’.

So PSG were riled by a fake social media post?

However, one player has come out of this with some credit - Edinson Cavani.

He refused to get involved in the team photo all doing Haaland’s celebration. Not only that, but he didn’t celebrate with the rest of his teammates in the dressing room after the match.

Well played, Edinson.

Haaland has taken European football by storm this season with the 19-year-old showing his incredible potential.

What has he done to be mocked mercilessly by fellow professionals?

At least Cavani has some respect.
