Arturo Vidal cheers on Bayern... and Juventus from Allianz Arena stands
With Bayern Munich in action against Sevilla in the Champions League quarterfinals, normally Arturo Vidal would be seen patrolling the midfield for the Bavarian giants. Due to injury, though, Vidal was relegated to watching from the stands, something he took full advantage of Wednesday.
It turns out Bayern vs. Sevilla was not the only match of interest to the Chilean, as Vidal also had his eyes glued to the second leg of the quarterfinal between Juventus and Real Madrid.
Watching first on his phone and later on a media member's laptop, the ex-Juve midfielder tuned into the dramatic second leg between the Spanish and Italian champions from the Allianz Arena stands, going through the gauntlet of emotions that we all did -- all while his own team played on the pitch below.
Vidal's love for Juventus is apparently still strong, as the combative midfielder could be seen celebrating Juve's third goal and tie leveller before showing disgust after Cristiano Ronaldo's decisive late penalty.

The Juve result might have been a disappointing one for Vidal but more importantly his current side Bayern advanced to the semis with a 2-1 aggregate win over Sevilla.
Hopefully, for the sake of Vidal's phone bill, he remembered to log on to the Allianz Arena's WiFi!
