Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain had been (very) gently ribbing each other on their official social media accounts in the build-up to their Champions League quarter-final clash in Paris, and after the French side won the first leg 3-1, PSG stepped things up a touch.

Monaco, who had taken on—and beaten—Chelsea in the semi-finals of the tournament a decade ago, wished PSG luck before the game with a reminder of their success:

Can you do this @PSG_inside ? Good game against @ChelseaFC! #ChampionsLeague2004 - pic.twitter.com/jeuIjWMR1e

Of course, with the same scoreline a decade later, PSG had the perfect riposte:

Dear @ASMFC_MONACO, Thank you for wishing us luck ! Hey @chelseafc, We can do This ! #PsgVaFaireLeBuzzCeSoir #PSGCHE pic.twitter.com/J4wEmcYZFg

An interesting side note of this is how supportive other teams were in Ligue 1 of PSG's accomplishments. The league champions retweeted compliments from more than one of their domestic opposition:

So you can do this ! Well done/Bien joué @PSG_inside against @chelseafc ! #ChampionsLeague

— AS MONACO FC (@ASMFC_MONACO) April 2, 2014

Un grand bravo au @PSG_inside victorieux de @chelseafc en #LdC ! A vous de jouer pour une place en 1/2 finale...

Bravo au @PSG_inside qui a fait ce soir un pas vers la qualification après son succès 3-1 au Parc des Princes face à @chelseafc #PSGCHE

Now, admittedly all of those stem from official accounts, but who could seriously imagine if the roles had been reversed the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal sending Chelsea congratulatory tweets?
