It must have pained Gerard Pique to admit that Barcelona are inferior to Real Madrid after the Blaugrana’s 5-1 defeat on aggregate to their rivals in the Spanish Super Cup, but he wasn’t lying.

Barcelona were made to look completely inept at times during both legs, with Real following up their 3-1 win in Sunday’s first leg with a comfortable 2-0 victory at the Bernabeu on Wednesday night.

It’s early days but it’s honestly hard to see Ernesto Valverde’s side keeping up with Real this season if Barça fail to surround Lionel Messi with better talent.

According to the club’s general manager Pep Segura, deals for Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho and Borussia Dortmund winger Ousmane Dembele are close to being completed.

"We know that we have to strengthen the team and that's what we will continue to do in the coming days," Segura told TV3 after last night’s match, per ESPN.

"We have to help the team. We're close [to Coutinho and Dembele], we're talking about the conditions but until everything is finalised, we can't say anything else. We hope they will wear a Barca shirt."

Barcelona's tweet upset their fans

Barcelona’s fanbase isn’t used to watching other club’s lifting trophies but in 2017 alone they’ve seen Real Madrid hoist the La Liga, Champions League and Spanish Super Cup trophies.

And the fans are sick and tired of it.

Real Madrid v FC Barcelona - Supercopa de Espana: 2nd Leg

Back in May, Barcelona congratulated Real Madrid on Twitter for winning the La Liga title.

And Barça’s social media team offered their congratulations once again on Wednesday night after the Super Cup loss.

The tweet, which has been between more than 7,000 times, reads: “Real Madrid receive the trophy as Spanish Super Cup champions. Congratulations.”

Barcelona fans react

Barcelona supporters do not wish to become known as ‘Congratulations FC’. Here’s how they reacted on Twitter.

Fans want Bartomeu gone

The vitriol aimed towards Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has been nothing short of relentless.

You’ve probably seen the hashtag ‘BartomeuDimiteYa’ on Twitter over the past few days - it means ‘Bartomeu Resign Now’ - and Barça fans won’t stop tweeting it unless things change.

Bartomeu has been accused of signing Paulinho for his own personal interest and the departure of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain, followed by their embarrassing showing in the Super Cup, has added more pressure to the 54-year-old’s position.
