Fans claim ‘obsessed’ Barcelona are missing Cristiano Ronaldo rivalry after bizarre tweet following 5-0 win over Betis

FANS are convinced “obsessed” Barcelona are missing their rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo after a bizarre tweet.

The LaLiga champions thumped Real Betis 5-0 on Saturday night.

But they put out a strange post following the full-time whistle at their temporary Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys home.

Because as well as having their own five scorers under the Barcelona name, the Catalan giants also added two ‘goals’ for Real Betis.

Both were ‘scored’ in the 55th minute – one by Ansu Fati, who has left Barca for Brighton on loan this season and helped the Seagulls beat Manchester United yesterday.

And the other had the name “C. Ronaldo”, unsurprisingly leaving supporters baffled.

Ronaldo has played against Barcelona 34 times, including 30 times for arch-rivals Real Madrid in El Clasico, with 20 goals in total.

However, the Portuguese forward has not faced Barca since his double for Juventus in a 3-0 Champions League win in December 2020 – and is unlikely to again any time soon following his move to Saudi side Al-Nassr.

So users on Twitter were quick to send confused messages in response to the blunder post, which was quickly removed and corrected by Barca’s admin team.

One said: “Most random error.”

Another wrote: “Obsessed.”

A third added: “They’re still having nightmares about Ronaldo scoring against them.”

A fourth replied: “Rent free.”

And a final user commented: “How can you even do that accidentally?”

On the pitch, it was a memorable night for Joao Felix.

The new loanee from Atletico Madrid put in a man-of-the-match performance – including opening the scoring on 25 minutes then producing a sublime dummy to set up Robert Lewandowski for No2 seven minutes later.

Ferran Torres, Raphinha and a wonderful solo goal from Joao Cancelo completed the 5-0 rout that put Barcelona top of the table before Real Madrid aim to continue their 100 per cent start to the season against Real Sociedad tonight.
