Following the home victory, Barcelona tweeted a photo of former Real Betis defender Junior Firpo holding up five fingers with the caption 'Junior knows'.

The club tweeted: "Barcelona wish to sincerely apologise for any offence caused to Real Betis."

"No disrespect was intended, but we were wrong to publish it on a night that was very special for Junior."
