They took the opportunity to lash out at the Andalusian club over their Twitter post which obviously didn't sit well with Barca a few weeks ago.

Sevilla's initial post last month made reference to Barcelona's humiliation to Paris Saint Germain where Pique was pulling Kylian Mbappe's shirt with the caption saying 'Europa League and 'Sevilla in the CL last 16' as reported by The Mirror.

In their response, Barca told their visitors that football is all about respect and in the end, wished them a wonderful night.

"Football is about respect. Bona nit (goodnight)."

Meanwhile, Koeman was delighted with the dramatic win and heaped praises on Gerard Pique for his outstanding display all through the game. The Dutchman said after the game:
