FC Barcelona is attracting attention by making a typo saying that they gave up a goal to Cristiano Ronaldo (38, Al Nasr).
Barcelona played the 5th round of the 2023-24 La Liga season against Real Betis at the Estadi Olympic Luis Companis in Barcelona, Spain, on the 17th (Korean time). The result was a 5-0 victory. Barcelona took sole first place with 4 wins, 1 draw, and 13 points.
Even though they won 5-0, they were criticized after the game ended. This is because a serious error occurred in the club’s official social안전놀이터 media (SNS) post. Immediately after the end of the Real Betis match, Barcelona put up a poster announcing the score and scorer.
This is because Ronaldo and Ansu Fati (20, Brighton) were included in the list of scorers for the opposing team, Real Betis. On this day, Barcelona did not give up a single goal to Real Betis. The score was written straight as 5-0, but it was also stated that the goal was conceded in the 55th minute by Real Betis’ Ronaldo and Fatih.
In the process of creating the poster, it was posted on social media as is without any modification, without saying anything. Barcelona fans who discovered this criticized the club. Although it is a problem that there is a typo, I questioned why they bothered to include the names of Ronaldo and Fatih.
Ronaldo is a player who has played for Barcelona’s rival Real Madrid for a long time. After leaving the Spanish stage in 2018, he went on to play in Italy and England, and has been playing in Saudi Arabia’s Al Nasr since this year. Even if he wants to score a goal in the Barcelona goal, he cannot meet it. Fati is a former Barcelona youth player and recently moved to Brighton in England on loan.
Ronaldo often harassed Barcelona while playing on the European stage in the past. He played 34 games against Barcelona in which he scored 20 goals and provided 3 assists. They are among the top 4 teams that have conceded the most goals to Ronaldo. Sevilla (27 goals), Atletico Madrid (25 goals), Getafe (23 goals), and then Barcelona (20 goals).
Barcelona deleted the SNS post full of typos and posted a corrected post. Although normal content was uploaded belatedly, criticism and ridicule from fans continued. There are strong voices from fans asking, “Do you want to be treated like that by Ronaldo again?” and “Why on earth did you include the name party?” For reference, Fatih made his English Premier League (EPL) debut on the same day in an away game at Manchester United.
On this day, Barcelona finished the first half with a 2-0 score thanks to back-to-back goals from Joao Felix and Robert Lewandowski. In the second half, Ferran Torres scored from a free kick, and Rafinha and Joao Cancelo also added one goal each. Five players shared five goals, displaying tremendous firepower.
Barcelona’s performance at the beginning of this season is unusual. After a 0-0 draw against Getafe in the first round, they lost against Cádiz (2-0 win), Villarreal (4-3 win), Osasuna (2-1 win), and Real Betis (5-0 win). Scored victory. No team has scored more goals than Barcelona during the same period.
