Barcelona trolls Luka Modric and Real Madrid with a brutal social media post about their superstar Lionel Messi.
Barcelona reached the final of the Copa del Rey with an emphatic 3-0 win over Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night.
The side will take on Valencia in the final of the competition.
Barca cruised past their arch-rivals in the second leg after the first game of the tie ended in a 1-1 draw at Camp Nou.
The Catalan side retained the bragging rights after the game as Real Madrid are yet to beat their El Clasico rivals in three attempts this season. This weekend will be their fourth attempt at finally making a turnaround as Real hosts the side in the heavyweight league fixture.
! ️THE BALANCE OF THE CLASSICO IS ALREADY BALANCED! ️
Real Madrid: 95 victories.
Barcelona: 95 victories.
There was no balance since August 23, 2012.
And next Saturday, Barça can take the lead, something that has not happened for … 87 YEARS! pic.twitter.com/qskPJkZ24J

Barcelona, meanwhile, trolled Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric on Twitter after the victory, as they promoted the club’s jersey.
In the picture, a hand is seen pulling Lionel Messi’s jersey as he keeps the ball. While Barca has cropped the picture, the original image shows that it was actually Luka Modric.
The caption read, “It’s much easier to get a
#Messi shirt by going to our online store.”
Here’s the tweet:

Frenkie de Jong: “Perhaps it’s true that after Barcelona signed me I didn’t play like myself the first weeks, maybe it’s still in your head too much. But since the game against Real Madrid I am playing completely like myself again and it’s going great.” pic.twitter.com/uvFm2Z9DGM
