Although it does not seem like a serious publication of a serious club like Bayern Munich, the German club allowed itself yesterday, amid the euphoria of the Benfica win (0-4) in the match of the third day of the Champions League, joking and ridiculing Brazilian forward Everton in his own goal action.
The striker, nicknamed ‘Cebolinha’, a very popular cartoon character in this South American country, played his Brazilian version on Bayern Munich’s official Twitter. “Chive, the goal counts,” he published. Jorge Jesús, the Benfica coach, defended his striker: “Not because he has the misfortune of scoring an own goal, he will be devalued.”
Bayern gave a true review of Benfica, on a night where Sané, a double, Lewandowski … and ‘Cebolinha’ Everton scored. A win that elevates Bayern as the leader of Group E, with full victories and 9 points.
