The first leg match Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund saw Erling Haaland score a brace as PSG lost away at the Signal Iduna Park. However, the second leg saw Neymar and co. bring their A-game as PSG bossed Dortmund on Wednesday night (Thursday IST). The Brazilian made sure he took a jibe at Haaland after he hilariously mocked the teenager with his signature 'Zen' celebration.

The 2-0 win at the Parce des Princes helped PSG secure a 3-2 aggregate win over the German side. Neymar opened the scoring for the Parisians in the 28th minute after he sent his diving header past Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki. The Brazilian had a special celebration in mind after he ran over to the PSG bench before mocking Haaland’s celebration with some meditation of his own.
The PSG forward even took to Instagram to further poke fun at Haaland posting his meditation pose celebration with the caption 'Paris is our city, not yours'.
Juan Bernat's strike at the stroke of half-time ensured Dortmund couldn't fight back into the game as PSG defenders kept Haaland, Jadon Sancho and others at bay. However, the conclusion of the match saw another jibe at Haaland, this time by the entire PSG side.

With the win, PSG have secured their Champions League quarter-finals berth. PSG will now be back in Ligue 1 on Sunday night (Monday IST). They will host Nice at the Parc des Princes. Dortmund will look to move past their Champions League heartbreak when they face Schalke next in the Bundesliga.
Meanwhile, at Anfield, Liverpool dramatically collapsed against Atletico Madrid, crashing out of the tournament.
