Over the weekend, Lyon pulled off one of the biggest stunners of the Champions League, taking down Manchester City 3-1 in the quarterfinals.
The English Premier League giants were massive favorites to come out on top, but Lyon, which finished in seventh place of the Ligue 1 table this past season, took down City with a pair of late goals in the second half.
For years now, haters have called Ligue 1 the 'Farmers' League' because they claimed there was little to no competition at the top. Well, Lyon shut everyone up when they eliminated City from the competition. PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe watched the game and sent quite the message to everyone after the final whistle too.

Take that, everyone!
Mbappe calling people out for being clowns is perfect. Not only did he show love to Lyon, but he blasted everyone who doubted them at the same time.
For Paris Saint-Germain, they've dominated Ligue 1 in recent years and have won the championship three years in a row. They're in the semifinals of the Champions League as well and will take on RB Leipzig on Tuesday.
For two teams from Ligue 1 to be in the Champions League semifinals is basically unheard of. Should both Lyon and PSG somehow meet in the final, the rest of the world will be speechless. Let's see if it happens. If it does, chances are we'll see Mbappe and Lyon players take to Twitter to call everyone out once again.
