Barcelona's Official Account Accused Of Editing Video To 'Prove' Foul

Barcelona's Official Account Accused Of Editing Video To 'Prove' Foul

Barcelona have been accused of editing the 'proof' that they should have won a penalty in their Copa del Rey semi-final first leg with Sevilla.

On Wednesday night Sevilla beat their rivals 2-0 at home to give themself a big chance of reaching the final, with Joules Kounde opening the scoring with a brilliant goal, before Ivan Rakitic stuck the knife in late on against his former side.

Barca, who haven't been having a particularly good season and are eight points behind league leaders Atletico Madrid, having played a game more, were aggrieved not to win a second half penalty.

Ronald Koeman's side believed that Suso had pulled Gerard Pique down in the box but instead only a free kick was given, for the incident being outside the box.

Even the club's social media team were getting involved in the calls for a penalty, tweeting the incident with the caption "This is how we saw it."

However Sevilla fans online have claimed that the video being used isn't completely legit and that there's been some monkey business involved in Barca's proof.

The accusation is that the Wednesday night's visitors have taken out a couple of frames from the video and distorted the truth of the incident.

Lionel Messi's Celebration For Barcelona's Equaliser Shows How Much The Club Still Means To Him

Barca's fans were already fed up of the team's social media activity, even before the accusations of editing, with an embarrassing moment on Wednesday.

Whilst the team were losing on the pitch to Sevilla, the club's YouTube channel were having a live discussion about the best pizza topping.

Koeman's side won't get the chance to overturn their defeat until next month and they have another huge game before that.

Next week they face PSG in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie, and the Ligue 1 champions will be without former Barca star Neymar.
