After losing to Athletic Bilbao in the League of Nations history, FC Barcelona took their first win of the season against Real Betis this weekend. The injured storm duo Messi and Suarez, along with their own offspring, watched the game from the stands.
When the Seville visitors were surprisingly led by Nabil Fekir, after 15 minutes, Messi's three-year-old son Matthew was taken away by a sweet jubilee – but to a bad team. A video of the scene can be found on Twitter.
With calm indignation, Suarez responded to Messi's successors with a clenched fist before the entire VIP box laughed.

According to his father, Mateo has a long history when it comes to supporting the "bad" team. For example, the boy raised his father after last year's Champions League against Liverpool (0: 4). "You understand it a bit, but you really do not realize it," said the five-time World Champion, who once showed that Mateo even encourages Real Madrid to score goals on TV.
After all: The Catalans turned the party on Sunday with goals from Carles Perez, Jordi Alba, ex-Bayer Arturo Vidal and Antoine Griezmann, who made a strange confetti jubilee for their home debut and 5: the second Lorenzo Garcia met shortly before the end Betis Nations.
