Newcastle United loanee Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa was on the wrong end of a 7-1 hammering for Roma.

AS Roma were humiliated by Bayern Munich at home in the Champions League, conceding seven goals at the Stadio Olimpico.

The loss was particularly notable for watching Newcastle United fans due to Toon loanee Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa playing at centre-back for the Italians.

Until now the deal has looked a perplexing one, with Newcastle struggling in the Premier League relegation zone, and the Frenchman playing for Serie A title chasers and Champions League side Roma.

Last night was a game in which Yanga-Mbiwa threatened to reset that assertion, with a poor display against a rampant Bayern.

He was far from the only one at fault, with the entire backline, including former Chelsea star Ashley Cole, second best all evening against Pep Guardiola's side.

For Newcastle supporters, especially those who have maintained Yanga-Mbiwa was not the right player for the club, the display had an element of vindication about.

For context of course, a hammering at the hands of Bayern Munich will happen to many teams this season, and that is not to say Newcastle possess any defenders who would be able to shut out such a talented side. 

Yet Yanga-Mbiwa may not quite be the player he was touted as being a few weeks ago. Here's a selection of reaction from fans to last night's result:
