Barcelona’s official Twitter account thought they’d roasted their rivals over at Chelsea, but sadly for them they were second best in the banter stakes.
The two sides meet in a pre-season friendly on Tuesday, as they continue their preparations for the start of the new campaign.
Given it’s non-competitive action, it was expected that there might not be too much in terms of a huge build-up, but these two have history with each other.
As seen in the tweet below, Barcelona initially responded to a message from the English Chelsea account and trolled them by referring to their absence from the Champions League in recent times.
However, the Blues came up with a stellar reply as their official account in the US got in on the act and superbly dug Barca out with a swipe at them over their exit at the hands of Liverpool last season.
We make that Chelsea 1-0 Barcelona before kick-off, but time will tell who has the last laugh on the pitch as both sides will be hoping for a morale-boosting win…
Is this a throwback to when you guys were playing in the Champions League? ? https://t.co/5BO3MOM7Wf
