  • PSG's attacking trio was savagely mocked after they failed to score even once against Bayern Munich
  • Augsburg trolled the famous strikers after their own striker scored thrice against the Bundesliga giants
  • Bayern Munich beat PSG earlier this week to eliminate them from the Champions League

Bundesliga club Augsburg took a brutal swipe at Paris Saint-Germain's attack line of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar following their Champions League elimination at the hands of Bayern Munich earlier in the week.

Bayern Munich beat PSG over two legs to knock them out at the round of 16 stage and make them wait even longer for their first Champions League title.

Surprisingly, PSG's feared trio couldn't score even once against the Bavarians, with Messi and Mbappe particularly silenced at the Allianz Arena. Neymar missed the game after sustaining a season-ending ankle injury.

Augsburg played Bayern Munich on Saturday in a top-flight game, and despite losing 5-3, they took solace in the fact that they did score thrice against the league champions - a fete PSG couldn't.

Ironically, had Christophe Galtier's side scored three goals over the two ties, the game could have gone to extra time and possibly penalties.

Mergim Berisha scored twice on march 11th to add to the strike he got in the first leg against the same opposition in a surprise 1-0 win in September.

Fans reactions

Fans trooped online to respond to the online troll.

@jogabonito said:

"Mbappé alone has more trophies than your club. Know your place."

@ahmdan said:

"I'd never thought I'd see the day where Berisha outscores the whole PSG team"

@Kofi_dubai said:

"Come and play in the champions league."

PSG bounced back to beat Brest in Ligue 1 on Saturday evening to cement their lead in France, while Augsburg's defeat saw them remain in 13th place.

Messi achieves new milestone

Sports Brief had earlier reported that Messi reached 300 club assists as Paris Saint-Germain wiped their midweek wounds with a hard-fought victory over Brest.

The genius number 10 added further gloss to his greatest of all-time claim when he set up Kylian Mbappe, who made no mistake by rounding the goalkeeper before slotting home from close range.

PSG were coming off a 2-0 defeat at Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 in midweek, suffering a 3-0 aggregate loss. Messi's latest milestone intertwined with PSG's 3000th goal in the French top flight.
