Barcelona have responded to Thibaut Courtois' comments about Lionel Messi by posting a brilliant video of the Argentine superstar scoring past the goalkeeper.
The Real Madrid stopper stoked the flames ahead of Sunday's El Clasico by dismissing the threat of Messi.
The Catalan giants have since responded to his claim by uploading a video of Messi humiliating Courtois.
The video shows Messi scoring a handful of goals against Courtois during his time at Atletico Madrid and Chelsea.
Check out the clip below, titled: "The [goat emoji] vs. current Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois ..."

Naturally, Barcelona's tweet got fans talking.
One wrote: "Ok this was after an interview where Courtois says he sees Messi like every other player Admin Thank you for this mighty dub."
A second tweeted: "THE TIMING LOOOOOOL."
Another added: "GOAT ADMIN, that's final."
The Belgium international attempted to play mind games with Messi ahead of their La Liga clash by playing down the Barcelona skipper.
"Messi? For me he's like any other player," he said.
"We study him like we would study a player from Celta Vigo or Levante. There is no difference.
"It was the case during my first season with Atletico Madrid, especially when you play Camp Nou for the first time, with all these stars.
"At that moment, if you don't think about it, it is because something is wrong with you."
Meanwhile, Barcelona head to the Bernabeu top of the league, two points clear of Real Madrid who can move above the league leaders if they beat their arch rivals.
