Mumbai Police, known for mixing creative and humorous messages to spread vital information during the Covid-19 pandemic, have come up with another set of original messages. This time, they used the Champions League theme ahead of the semi-finals which will start on May 4, Tuesday night. Here’s a look at the Champions League matches and hilarious and informative soccer puns posted by the Mumbai Police Twitter account.
Champions League semi-final: Man City vs PSG, Chelsea vs Real Madrid
Manchester City will face PSG in the UCL semi-final second leg on May 4, Tuesday night at the Etihad Stadium.

The second UCL semi-final second leg takes place between Chelsea and Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge on May 5, Wednesday night. The first leg between the two teams ended squarely at 1-1, but Thomas Tuchel’s side will head to this stage with a crucial away goal.

Mumbai Police Twitter: Mumbai Police football tweet
The Mumbai Police Twitter account reaffirmed its stance of posting great content on social media by spreading the word about the safety of Covid-19 using football credentials this time around.
In their latest article, Mumbai police used references from upcoming football matches to highlight ways to maintain hygiene during the novel coronavirus pandemic. The first photo refers to Real Madrid’s Eden, Eden Hazard, who will play against Chelsea in the Champions League semi-final second leg. Mumbai Police use a hilarious pun to highlight the consequences of wearing the mask “incorrectly”.
The second image where Mumbai Police use Arsenal’s benchmark is perhaps the most innovative and hilarious. Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger side were called ‘Invincinbles’ in the 2003/04 season as the Gunners did not lose a single game in the entire season and were crowned Premier League champions.
In this context, the Mumbai police inform the Mumbaikars that they must keep masks and disinfectants in their “ arsenal ” to remain “ invincible ” against the coronavirus. The Mumbai Police football tweet received a favorable response from people as the post received over 210 retweets and 800 likes. This is not the first time that the Mumbai police have used such creative themes as during the entire Covid-19 pandemic, several informative messages have been published in the same way.
