Barcelona Twitter Goes Into Meltdown Following Derby Draw & #ValverdeOut Trends – Again

?Happy new decade, Barcelona supporters! 

There is no better way to start off a new era in football, than with a derby against your rivals in a must-win match for your title hopes. 

Unless you don’t win, obviously. 

Barcelona are in a serious fight for the La Liga trophy this season, with Real Madrid leading the charge before kick-off, and Atlético Madrid breathing down their necks. 

So the Derbi Barceloní presented la Blaugrana with the chance to leapfrog los Merengues at the summit of Spanish football once again, and further deepen their rivals’ relegation fears.

Espanyol were marooned at the bottom of the table, and yet to score in the first half of a football match at home this season. An easy three points for their Catalan rivals, right? 


Espanyol took the lead, breaking their first-half-home hoodoo and breaking Barça hearts at the same time.

??Some of us went to extreme lengths to watch this disaster-class…

No Barça players were getting off lightly on Twitter, but Ivan Rakitic was the lightning rod for the frustration echoing around the platform. 



Don’t worry ?Luis Suarez, you are still excellent with the ball at your feet. Just don’t check Twitter, whatever you do…



??If it’s any consolation Luis, it isn’t just your dribbling skills that everyone hates. 

But el Pistolero did get his revenge in the second half, bagging his side’s equaliser and setting up Arturo Vidal’s header. 

??The visitors were dealt a blow when Frenkie de Jong saw red with 15 minutes to play… 


And to absolutely no one’s surprise, Barça binned the game in the final minutes, conceding a sloppy goal to substitute Wu Lei and drawing 2-2

Can you guess what was trending at the end of the match? Well, it involves a certain Ernesto Valverde, and it revolves around him not being Barcelona boss anymore. Something like… #ValverdeOut 

??It’s tough at the top, Barça fans.
