Barcelona fans tweeting 'Manita' at Real Madrid after El Clásico 5-1 win

Barcelona embarrassed Real Madrid on Sunday afternoon

Things went from bad to worse for Real Madrid on Sunday afternoon, as the European champions suffered yet another league defeat at the hands of their arch rivals Barcelona.

A hat-trick from Luis Suárez, with Philippe Coutinho and Arturo Vidal also getting in on the act ensured that Barcelona cruised to a 5-1 victory.

This prompted many Barcelona fans to lord it over their Madrid counterparts with the phrase 'manita'.

Deriving from the Spanish 'la mano', 'manita' translates to 'little hand' and is used when one team thrashes another by a 5-0 scoreline, each finger representing one goal.

Gerard Piqué famously held five fingers up to Real Madrid fans the last time Barcelona put five goals past them in November 2010 under Guardiola, and he did the same again today.

Technically a 'manita' is a 5-0 victory, but that did not stop Barça fans from using the phrase to rub salt in the wounds of their rivals' fans on Sunday afternoon.
