The boy was said to have supported Liverpool during their 4-0 demolition of Barca at Anfield in the Champions League earlier this year.

It took the brilliance of Antoine Griezmann to ensure the Catalans avoided defeat before heading to the dressing room for the half time break.

On return to the pitch, the Frenchman completed his brace to put the hosts ahead for the first time in the 50th minute, and they controlled proceedings until the end of the match.

While a goal each from Carles Perez, Jordi Alba and Arturo Vidal sealed the needed victory for the home team.

Meanwhile, both Messi and Suarez are said to have returned to training having missed the game at Camp Nou due to calf issues.

Messi said: "Mateo likes all the shirts and he puts them on, but last time on the Playstation he said, 'I'm being Liverpool, the ones who beat you. I'm Liverpool and you're Barcelona'.

"He understands a little but doesn't realise it yet. Just like when we lost to Valencia, [he said] 'Valencia won, ehhh'. Or we watch TV and he cheers Real Madrid's goals."

Legit.ng earlier reported that Barcelona came from one goal down to beat Real Betis 5-2 and clinch their first Spanish League victory this season.

Two goals from Antoine Griezmann, while Carles Perez, Jordi Alba and Arturo Vidal all scored a goal each to outshine their visitors.

As Nabil Fekir and Loren Moron's goals ended up as mere consolations for the visitors at the end of the meeting.
