Arab commentary seemed to brutally troll Real Madrid during a passage between Manchester City’s Ederson and John Stones.
The Blues ran the show in the opening stages of Wednesday’s second-leg clash at the Etihad as Bernardo Silva bagged a brilliant brace.
The Portuguese opened the scoring in the 23rd minute with a lovely finish inside the box after Kevin De Bruyne picked him out with a stunning pass.
A few minutes later, Ederson had his first touch of the game. In the 28th minute, the Man City keeper received the ball from Stones, with the Arabic commentary delivering a ruthless joke.
He said: “John Stones. Oof! Thank God we saw Ederson. He’s alive. Alive and kicking. Standing right there.”

The commentary didn’t go unnoticed among fans online as they made their feelings known about Arabic commentary.
One Twitter user wrote: “Stones just passed it back to Ederson and this Arab commentator said ‘Alhamdulilah we finally get confirmation that Ederson is on the pitch’.”
A second tweeted: “Arab commentators are the goats.”
A third added: “Bro after 27 mins is mental.”
A fourth said: “Arabic commentary is next-level.”
Another commented: “Arab commentators really are the best in the business.”
The Arabic commentary was surprised as the rest of us as Ederson had his first touch in the game.
And other than Toni Kroos’ long-range effort and David Alaba’s free-kick, the Brazilian goalkeeper was barely called into action. But he watched on as his side reached the Champions League final.
Silva doubled his side’s lead before the break, with Manuel Akanji and Julian Alvarez also getting on the score-sheet.
Man City will face Inter Milan in Istanbul, Turkey, on June 10 as Pep Guardiola will be looking to claim his first Champions League trophy for the club since his appointment in 2016 and his first since 2011.
