Barca-Sundowns game 'felt like a PlayStation match' - Twitter users react
Cape Town - Spanish giants Barcelona beat Mamelodi Sundowns 3-1 in their Mandela Centenary Cup clash at FNB Stadium on Wednesday night in a game that produced some well-taken goals.
Perhaps the biggest cheer of the night was reserved for Lionel Messi, who was introduced into the fray off the substitutes bench in the 73rd minute.
Naturally, Twitter reacted to not only having the prestigious Spanish club in the country but to the game as well which was played in front of a capacity 80,000 strong crowd.
Here is some of the reaction on social media:
