Javier Mascherano’s slip

Barcelona dropped two points on Wednesday night in La Liga as they were held to a 1-1 home draw by Atletico Madrid.

Ivan Rakitic gave Barca the lead in the 41st minute, but after the break Angel Correa levelled for Atleti.

Correa found the corner of the Catalan net with a shot from outside the box, but before he pulled the trigger, Correa left Javier Mascherano on his face.

The Argentine centre-half fell to the floor, arm outstretched, as Correa left him for dead before finding the target.

Mascherano v Steven Gerrard

As soon as the incident happened, Steven Gerrard comparisons were being made on social media.

Stevie G’s famous fall against Chelsea which helped Liverpool lose the Premier League title still rankles fresh in the memory.

Of course, Gerrard played alongside Mascherano at Liverpool.

Others, however, made other jokes at Mascherano’s expense.
