Barcelona vs. Liverpool: Social media reaction

Barcelona vs. Liverpool: Social media reaction

It’s been an action-packed week of football in the Champions League. Following Tottenham’s narrow defeat to Ajax, Liverpool travelled to Barcelona to try and secure their own path to the final. Liverpool have never lost a two-legged tie against Barcelona in Europe and, with their domestic form so good, fans were in a bullish mood before the match.

One fan was left glowing about their brilliant season and had a clear idea about what was to come.

 

 

Another pointed out Liverpool’s great record at the Nou Camp.

 

 

However, unfortunately things didn’t go to plan. A masterclass from Lionel Messi was too much for the Reds who slumped to a 3-0 defeat.

Twitter was full of praise for the mercurial Argentinian. He was compared to another powerful figure.

 

 

Whilst even Liverpool fans were gushing about him.

 

 

Virgil van Dijk has handled every striker in the Premier League this season but confirmed that he wants as little of Messi as possible.

 

 

And his body language during one of Messi’s strikes confirmed as much.

 

 

Or was he just recreating a popular meme?

 

 

Van Dijk’s personal record at the Nou Camp was highlighted.

 

 

Meanwhile a lookalike was spotted in the stands.

 

 

Messi also scored a long range goal which was compared to a subsequent effort from Mo Salah.

 

 

Reds fans were unimpressed that former hero Luis Suarez celebrated his goal against them. Naturally this went down well elsewhere.

 

 

Though it was also pointed out that they shouldn’t take it personally.

 

 

Prior to the game some unpleasant fans had been pushing the locals into a fountain in town. Fans were quick to reference this in their gloating over the humbling.

 

 

And this pun went down very well.

 

 

Meanwhile, one Arsenal fan who was revelling in the defeats that their domestic rivals suffered, tempted fate with this Tweet.
