Luis Suárez Hilariously Joins In Handball Claims, Doesn’t Realise Nélson Semedo Handballed It

Luis Suárez Hilariously Joins In Handball Claims, Doesn’t Realise Nélson Semedo Handballed It

Luis Suárez was left a little bit red-faced after he joined in for handball claims without realising that Nélson Semedo was at fault for it.

Oh dear! Talk about a very, very awkward moment during the Barcelona and Real Betis match on Sunday.

The former Liverpool star heard fans calling out for handball, but he seemed completely unaware that it was his Barça teammate was in the wrong.

Unsurprisingly, football fans spotted the moment during the match and flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts on the hilarious incident.

"Yup, I noticed that. Did anyone noticed [the] Betis player lying [on] the ground on that free-kick goal," one Twitter user wrote.

A second said: "I wonder why earlier Suárez was shouting hand[ball] even though it was never near a Barça's hand. This explains it."

A third added: "The fans claimed that Semedo handled it, but Suárez claimed a possible Marc Bartra handball, which really hit his knee, but OK."

A fourth wrote: "Classic Suárez."

Following on from completing his brace, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner completed his hat-trick in perfect fashion by chipping Pau López, whose reaction said it all when he realised that he been beaten by the tidy finish from the Argentine ace.

Messi's performance earned him the respect of Béticos fans inside the Benito Villamarín after they applauded and chanted his name during a standing ovation.
