Valencia youngsters troll Barcelona by reenacting water bottle incident

Barcelona are still feeling raw about the water bottle incident that marred last weekend’s La Liga clash at the Mestalla.

Following Lionel Messi’s stoppage-time winner, scored from the penalty spot, a bottle of water was thrown towards the Argentina international and his teammates as they celebrated.

Neymar and Luis Suarez both hit the ground in ‘pain’ - much to the amusement and confusion of some football fans on social media - but there was no excuse for such behaviour and Valencia were rightly fined (albeit just €1500) for the incident.

Los Che have also been threatened with playing future games behind closed doors if any similar incidents occur in the future.

The supporter who threw the bottle, meanwhile, issued a heartfelt apology for his actions last week.

But a Valencia youth team, Patacona CF, have risked stirring up additional trouble by reenacting the incident.

A bottle of water was thrown towards the Under-12 side as the celebrated - and they all fell to the ground, despite the fact it didn’t touch any of them.

It’s very amusing but we can’t say for sure if Barcelona will see the funny side.

And here's the real incident again...

Barcelona fans angry with La Liga boss

La Liga boss Javier Tebas arguably made the situation worse last week by accusing the Barcelona players of play-acting, per AS, and saying he would have been “ashamed to pretend” as Neymar and co. did.

In response to Tebas’s statement, Barcelona fans held up hundreds of big red cards while singing uncomplimentary songs about the Liga chief.
