Barcelona could not repeat their heroics from midweek as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat against Deportivo La Coruna. Joselu opened the scoring for the home side in the 40th minute before Luis Suarez brought Luis Enrique’s side on level terms with a cool finish from inside the box.

Alex Bergantinos then scored – what proved to be the eventual winner – in the 74th minute to make it 2-1. Barcelona fans remained glued to the television sets as they anticipated another comeback from the Catalan giants – following the mid-week madness against Paris Saint-Germain.

The loss also allowed Real Madrid to gain the upper hand in the race for the La Liga title as Los Blancos can go top of the table with a win later tonight. It also meant that Barcelona’s 19-match unbeaten streak in the league comes to a screeching halt.

Twitter, as you would expect, didn’t hold back and trolled Barcelona and PSG following the former’s loss. Here are the best tweets:

The comeback that wasn’t?

Zidane was correct all along! 



They have Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez and still lose to a 15th placed side! 

Just Barcelona things! 

The end of the streak and title hopes?
