The Dutchman has been unable to keep Barca out tonight,  with the Catalan giants 1-0 up thanks to a Luis Suarez goal so far.

Liverpool should have little to fear in this game after their superb season, though it must be said that Messi and co. can make anyone look a bit silly on their day.

Others also noticed this moment, even if it is a tad harsh on Van Dijk, who can’t be blamed for wanting a bit more support!
