Bayern Munich have poked fun at Arsenal on Twitter – in English – following their emphatic victory in the Champions League knockout-round on Tuesday.
The German champions obliterated Arsenal over both legs, running out 10-2 aggregate winners with a 5-1 victory at the Emirates on Tuesday night.
With Arsenal fans already enraged at the manner of the team’s performance, Bayern’s official club Twitter account have added further fuel to the fire by trolling fans over the astonishing scoreline.

Having booked their place in the quarter finals, the German side are revelling in their victory, but their Twitter message is not likely to sit well with Arsenal fans, who need no reminder of what was a humiliating evening for their side.
The defeat was Arsenal’s second in as many games, having also been defeated 3-1 by Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday.
Arsene Wenger’s side are currently fifth in the league, and face an uphill struggle to qualify for the Champions League next season.
The FA Cup remains Arsenal’s only realistic chance of silverware for the remainder of the campaign, after their European hopes once again came crashing down at the knockout-stage.
Chasing a four goal deficit headed into the tie with Bayern Munich, Theo Walcott gave the home side faint hope of a remarkable comeback with an early strike.
However, following Laurent Koscielny’s dismissal early into the second half, the floodgates opened at the Emirates.
Robert Lewandowski first converted from the penalty spot, before Arjen Robben, Douglas Costa and Arturo Vidal (two) all got in on the act in a second half blitz.
