The German club just couldn’t help but get involved

Bundesliga club VfL Wolfsburg bizarrely trolled Manchester City after the Premier League club exited the Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid.

Madrid secured a sensational comeback win over City in the semi-final, winning the tie 6-5 on aggregate. Carlo Ancelotti’s side scored in the 90th minute and in added time to take the game to extra time.

Then, Karim Benzema calmly converted his penalty in the first-half of extra-time to secure the home side’s place in the Champions League final, where Los Blancos will face-off against Liverpool later this month.

City – who came into the tie with a 4-3 aggregate lead after overcoming Madrid in the first leg and took the lead through Riyad Mahrez in the second leg – blew their chances of reaching successive Champions League finals after collapsing in the final few minutes of the clash at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.

Following the scintillating second leg tie, Wolfsburg jokingly mocked City on Twitter, posting a graphic of famous meme where one person is hugging several other people.

However, the German club put their own spin on the meme and added the badges of City, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and themselves – appearing to male reference to all the aforementioned clubs’ failure in this season’s Champions League campaign.

On the other hand, it could also have been reference to Wolfsburg’s Women’s side, who also recently lost a Champions League semi-final.

On the way to the final, Madrid overcame both PSG and Chelsea, before securing their place in the final on Wednesday night.

Wolfsburg, on the other hand, finished bottom of Group G, having win just one of their six group matches.

The Bundesliga outfit were evidently keen to include themselves in the joke, but made sure they mocked a number of other sides in the process.

Liverpool and Real Madrid will compete for Champions League glory at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis on May 28.
