Since that point, it seems the Blaugrana haven’t quite got up and over the hill they’ve been trudging up over the last few years, with Spartak Moskow’s Twitter account the latest to have a dig following one fan’s tweet.

It’s a stunning fall from grace for a side of the size of the Catalan outfit, with Xavi’s men having not gone near the second-tier European competition since the 2003/04 season.

As far as Liverpool are concerned, it’s a decent advertisement for FSG’s focus on sustainability.
