Lionel Messi scored four goals as Barcelona thrashed Eiber 6-1 on Tuesday, but he and his Barcelona teammates were trolled for one particular gesture before the game.
Lionel Messi and the rest of the were ridiculed for paying tribute to summer signing Ousmane Dembele who got injured on his debut and has been ruled out for three months.

Dembele, who joined Barcelona for £96.8million from Borussia Dortmund, was ruled out of action for three and a half months after suffering a hamstring injury against Getafe at the weekend.
Messi and co. took to the Nou Camp pitch wearing "Courage Ousmane" shirts in homage to the forward, who was presumably watching back at home through his fingers.
But despite the gesture being good natured it was mocked by a number of people on Twitter on Tuesday night.
One wrote: “He's done his hamstring not died ffs.' 'This is soooo cringe! He has minor injury he isn't dying,” another added.
