Real Madrid stars Karim Benzema and Vinicius Jr appears to mock Barcelona after Bayern Munich loss in Champions League
REAL MADRID stars Karim Benzema and Vinicius Jr. appear to have mocked Barcelona following their 2-0 defeat to Bayern Munich last night.
Second-half goals from Lucas Hernandez and Leroy Sane allowed Bayern Munich to claim another victory against Barcelona.

Vinicius Jr followed suit with a post of his own

And following the Bundesliga champion’s victory, Los Blancos stars Benzema and Vinicius posted a thinly veiled dig at their rivals.
Benzema posted an image of him holding the Champions League trophy on his Instagram story, and paired it with the caption: “Good night.”
Vinicius followed suit, posting an image of him in training laughing with team-mates.
Real Madrid fans online saw the funny side of the stories, while a number of Barcelona fans, understandably aggravated by the dig, declared the pair were “obsessed” with the Blaugrana.
Despite not having an affiliation with Real Madrid, Chelsea defender Thiago Silva also joined in with the mocking
However, his post was aimed directly toward Jules Kounde.
Silva posted an image of him laughing with the caption: “He almost joined us.”
This was likely in direct response to Kounde’s post from last week responding to Chelsea’s 1-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb where the Barcelona star said: “I almost joined them.”
Kounde had been pursued by Chelsea during the summer, but opted to join Barcelona instead.
Real are the current holders of the competition after beating Liverpool 1-0 in the final last season.
They are also the record holders for most wins in the tournament with 14 victories, including five in the last nine years.
