Bayern Munich (& EA) enjoys dig at Liverpool striker Sadio Mane

Bayern Munich enjoyed a dig at Liverpool striker Sadio Mane after Tuesday's 0-0 draw.

Liverpool had 15 shots, but couldn't find a way past Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

Mane had several chances to score, including an audacious overhead kick attempt which flew high and wide past the goal of Manuel Neuer.

And Bayern Munich's English Twitter account meant sure the miss did not go unnoticed.

They posted: "Good job EA fixed those overhead kicks."

The tweet was in reference to EA Sports patching a glitch which saw overhead kicks being too commonplace and too powerful in FIFA 19.

EA even joined in the good-natured ribbing, replying: "You're welcome."
