Barcelona Upload Clasico Defeat Highlights As 'Pride In Defeat'
Barcelona have found a new way to embarrass themselves, by using the word 'pride' in a highlights video from Wednesday's Supercopa loss to Real Madrid.
Xavi's side faced their fierce rivals in the semifinal of the Supercopa, in Saudi Arabia's King Fahd Stadium, and came up short in their quest to qualify for the final.
The Catalan giants twice came from behind against Carlo Ancelotti's team but Federico Valverde's goal in extra time was ultimately the difference between the two teams.
Whilst an extra time defeat does show some amount of improvement, they still wouldn't have been happy losing, especially not to Los Blancos.
However, highlights of the game were uploaded to the club's official YouTube page with the caption 'Pride in Defeat,' and it's not exactly gone down too well.

Barça basically did what United did when they appointed Ole.
Hire an ex-player as manager, create nostalgic feelings in fans and slowly start to lower expectations & ambitions cause the club know they won’t be winning anything of relevance in the coming years. pic.twitter.com/XKjfBszPf8

Despite Barca's financial problems they were able to bring Ferran Torres into the club this month, but the former Manchester City forward was taken off at half time after a poor start to life with the Spanish giants.
Vinicius Jr opened the scoring after 25 minutes, breaking through the Barca defence, after Real won the ball back on half way, and smashing home.
Luuk de Jong equalised just before half time as Eder Miliato's clearance was hit at the striker, who knew little about it, and the ball went past Thibaut Courtois.
Real retook the lead through Karim Benzema in the 73rd minute but, with just eight minutes left, Ansu Fati ensured the game would go to extra time.
Xavi was denied the chance to win his first piece of silverware as Barca manager when Valverde scored eight minutes into the additional 30, still at least they've got their pride...
