Messi and Suarez combine to salvage a point for Barcelona against Real Betis, fans react [Best Tweets]

Barcelona were held to a 1-1 draw at the Estadio Benito Villamarín by Real Betis, thanks to some horrid refereeing and a lacklustre performance from the defending Champions.

Not many fans were happy to see Jeremy Mathieu in the starting XI

The Blaugrana were harshly denied their first goal by the ref, after he adjudged it to have not crossed the line. Replays showed that it the ball had comfortably made its way past the goal line by a foot, but with goal-line technology yet to be introduced in the La Liga, Barca had no choice but to get on with the game.

After much pressure, Suarez finally managed to equalise for his side 2 minutes away from the final whistle. The Uruguayan looked as if he could get on the scoresheet once again seconds later, but was denied the opportunity due to a foul.

It was the Argentine’s assist, that helped Barcelona snatch a valuable point away from this tie. The 29-year-old has saved them on numerous occasions this season and once again showed how dependent they are been on his magic.

The Barca faithful didn’t hold back on their criticism of the referee, with a lot of them accusing him of stealing three points from their side.
