Things are heating up as Chelsea prepare to face Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg of the last-16 tie of the Champions League on Wednesday. The Ligue 1 champions will travel to Stamford Bridge with a 2-1 lead in hand from the first leg.
The mind games are already in process between the two sides ahead of the crucial tie. The Paris club’s Twitter account posted a vine calling Chelsea striker Diego Costa “a fraud.”
The vine featured a number of superheroes along with Costa with the caption “Spot the Fraud.”

Now, the West London club’s Twitter account has responded to PSG’s provocative tweet with their own vine. The Blues’ vine features the Spanish international scoring against PSG in EA Sports’ FIFA 16.

Both teams are facing each other for the third consecutive year in the Champions League. Last year, PSG defeated the Blues on the away goal rule in the same stage of the competition. The year before that, the Blues prevailed in the quarter-finals of the tournament.
