Sergio Busquets Hasn't Tweeted Since His Liverpool Post Backfired

Sergio Busquets hasn't tweeted since a motivational post the night before Liverpool smashed Barcelona 4-0 in the Champions League.

Barcelona led the semi-final after a 3-0 victory at the Nou Camp the month prior.

However, Liverpool would go on to complete a sensational comeback at Anfield and won the tie 4-3 on aggregate.

Busquets tweeted a message of 'We're ready' on the eve of the game, but it's safe to say the 'Blaugrana' were not.

Busquet's has replied to a tweet, a message of support for Spain manager Luis Enrique after the death of his daughter.

However, his own Twitter posts have hugely diminished after previously posting near enough every day.

It's a fact that Liverpool fans seem to be loving.

The game at Anfield last season is one that will live in the memory of many football fans.

Barcelona's players were shell-shocked following their collapse and footage from the dressing room released in the autumn.

The footage shows Busquets with teammates such as Ivan Rakitic dejected after the full-time whistle.

Matchday, which is available to watch on Rakuten TV, also had a shocking scene at half-time when Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde was delivering a message to his players.

And a bewildered Jordi Alba had his head in his towel and needed comforting, despite Barcelona only losing 1-0 before the end of the first half.

Lionel Messi, who promised to bring the Champions League back to Barcelona in his first speech as club captain, delivered a motivational speech to his teammates before the Liverpool clash.

"Come on, people. We are going to take a step forward," he said.

"We can't waste this opportunity, OK?

"Give everything now that we are here.

"We have to start strong. Remember: Rome was our fault. Nobody else's.

"We mustn't let the same thing happen. It was our fault and nobody else's."

However, two goals apiece from Gini Wijnaldum and Divock Origi gifted a memorable evening on Merseyside.
