VIRAL: Bayern Munich stars celebrate Benfica victory in bizarre hot tub clip

Posted by

Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal has shared a joyous video on Instagram of he and teammate David Alaba celebrating the Bavarians’ 1-0 victory over Benfica in the Champions League.

The two teammates appear to show no side effects from the gruelling and tense encounter with the Portuguese side, and are shown jumping up and down and dancing to music inside a giant jacuzzi.

Someone has overlayed the video with the words ‘Regeneration mood after a winning game’, while the Chilean midfielder has accompanied the clip—shared on his @kingarturo23oficial account—with the words, “With my brother David Alaba, regaining strength for Saturday.”

Arturo has every reason to be delighted with his showing against the Portuguese giants, in which he scored the Bavarians’ only goal as they registered a 1-0 first-leg victory.

The match was tighter than some had expected, although Pep Guardiola will surely be delighted that his makeshift backline—of Alaba partnering Joshua Kimmich—was not exposed by Benfica’s forward line.

Vidal, playing as the anchorman in Bayern’s 4-1-4-1 formation, was one of the key reasons why the defence held firm, while his header may prove critical.
