It’s all about the bragging rights as Barcelona took to Twitter to troll Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus after the Spanish side’s 2-0 victory over the Italian champions on Wednesday.
The Catalan giants triumphed over Juve at the Camp Nou on Wednesday, moving atop their Champions Leaguegroup with two wins from as many games.
Barca took advantage of a first-half goal from Ousmane Dembele, whose shot deflected up and over Wojciech Szczesny for the game’s opener.
The second goal of the game came in the 91st minute with a Lionel Messi spot-kick, with Juventus having seen Merih Demiral sent off moments earlier for a second yellow.
Originally billed as a clash of two of the greatest of all time in Messi and Ronaldo, Juventus were without their talismanic striker once again on Wednesday.
The Portuguese talisman has been absent after testing positive for the coronavirus during the international break, and he did not produce a negative test in time to take part in Wednesday’s Champions League clash.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, Ronaldo said he was “feeling good and healthy”, but the Juventus star then commented questioning the accuracy of the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests that ruled him out for the Barca match.
Without Ronaldo, Juventus were unable to produce a goal, although Alvaro Morata did see a trio of finishes ruled out due to offside calls.
And Barcelona took to social media to troll their opponents after the match, saying: We are glad you were able to see the GOAT on your pitch, @juventusfcen!”
