Barcelona midfield maestro couldn’t help but take an amusing Poke at arch-rivals Real Madrid after their surprising loss to Girona by a final scoreline of 4-2. This league slip-up provided a moment of humor for the Spanish midfielder, who posted on social media further fueling the already intense rivalry.

Gavi is as passionate as they come in a Barcelona jersey and he certainly takes slight jabs at every available opportunity especially when it comes to rivals Real Madrid. His recent Instagram story posted right after Real Madrid’s crushing defeat to Girona has initiated a lot of reactions across social media, continuing his streak of playful behavior against his opponents.

The timing and manner of his post coincided with Real Madrid’s league slip and it led social media followers to take it as a subtle dig at the Los Blancos. Although, the Spanish star made no direct reference to Real Madrid in his message, in any way but the laughing emojis provided enough ammunition for unwelcomed speculation. Many fans across the league won’t be thrilled by his teasing attempts.

Following the unexpected loss of Real Madrid, Barcelona’s path to their 27th league title now appears to be a fairly simple one as the Blaugrana move 11 points clear at the top of the table with one game in hand.

Xavi and the team have strengthened their hold on the top spot for a while now and as the season approaches its end, Barcelona fans can feel confident and await the celebrations of yet another prestigious league title.

Was it a deliberate attempt to belittle Real Madrid or was it just an unrelated coincidence? Regardless of the matter at hand, Gavi looks set to celebrate his league wins with his comrades in a few weeks’ time. Also, the possibility of finishing the season in triple digits can be realized once again.
