PSG knock Dortmund out

Borussia Dortmund travelled to Paris on Wednesday, to take on Ligue 1 powerhouse PSG in a Champions league last-16 clash.

Wednesday’s game at the Parc des Princes was the second of two legs taking place between the sides.

The previous leg saw Borussia Dortmund emerge with a 2-1 victory thanks to a brace from rising star Erling Haaland.

Dortmund and Haaland were kept quiet earlier this week, though, as PSG bagged themselves a 2-0 win in Paris, securing their place in the CL last eight.

Highlights: PSG 2-Dortmund 0

Erling Haaland’s dad hits out at PSG stars

In the wake of their victory over Dortmund, some PSG stars appeared to mock Erling Haaland.

As mentioned above, the Borussia Dortmund hitman netted a brace in the first-leg, and would mark the goals with his trademark celebration, as shown in the video below.

But in the aftermath of the second-leg, a handful of PSG players videoed themselves in the dressing room mimicking the Danish star’s celebration.

Erling Haaland’s dad would respond to a video of this on Twitter, and appeared to aim a dig at the PSG players, writing:

Goodbye beautiful Paris. Shame about the result, but well deserved on the day. All the best, showing class on and off the pitch.

Neymar also appeared to mock Haaland on his Instagram, posting a picture of himself doing the Dortmund forward’s celebration with the caption:
