FC Barcelona mocked on Twitter after Spanish Super Cup surrender to Real Madrid
FC Barcelona had to bear the brunt of a number of jokes on microblogging site Twitter after their tame defeat to Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cupfootball Updated: Aug 17, 2017 10:42 IST
Real Madrid’s comfortable 2-0 second leg win over bitter rivals FC Barcelona, which enabled them to lift the Spanish Super Cup 5-1 on aggregate, was one of the most globally talked about developments on social media in the early hours of Thursday.
Marco Asensio’s stunning goal from long-range, followed by Karim Benzema’s calm finish from the goalmouth saw Los Blancos cruise to a rather comfortable win, despite the absence of suspended Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo.
Twitter was in fine form amidst all the action, and Barcelona were in for some rough treatment on the microblogging site after going down tamely to their biggest rivals.
Centre back Gerard Pique was among those to bear the brunt of an underwhelming performance.
