Barcelona and Liverpool trolled on Twitter

Barcelona and Liverpool trolled on Twitter after squandering two-goal lead vs hosts [TWEETS]

March 20, 2016 By Andrew Amoth Wandola
La Liga title-contenders FC Barcelona squandered a two goal lead against Villarreal to secure a two-all draw at the end of regular time, and the same thing happened to Liverpool miles away in England.

In Spain, Luis Enrique’s men seemed to be in firm control of the game vs Villarreal, thanks to the opening goal from Ivan Rakitic in the 20th minute and the second from Neymar 20 minutes later. The match itself did not lack its own fair share of drama off the pitch; the centre referee sent off Villarreal manager Marcelino Garcia for protesting.

In the second-half, the hosts came out strongly as Cedric Bakambu scored the first for his side in the 57th minute. Six minutes later, Barcelona’s Jeremy Mathieu, who came in as a substitute, scored an own goal to put the tie at level. 

Although the Catalan giants threw away their two-goal lead, they still maintained their unbeaten run, which now stands at 39 games in all competitions this season.

Coincidentally, Premier League side Liverpool FC also squandered a 2-0 first half-lead against Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium as they lost 3-2 in a thrilling encounter. Sadio Mane scored a brace after missing a penalty for the hosts in the 50th minute, while Graziano Pelle also got himself on the score sheet to give the Saints a 3-2 win. 

Interestingly, football fans on Twitter were quick to note the striking similarities between the Luis Enrique’s and Ronald Koeman’s side over the weekend; both were leading  2-0 at half-time before blowing it away against their hosts. However, the major difference was that Barca managed to secure at least a point against the hosts, while Liverpool went back to Anfield without a single point.

Here are some of the best reactions on Twitter;
