& # 39; Guy can't catch (a pause) & # 39 ;: fans joke David de Gea after half a spot from Lionel Messi stealing his chips shortly after the Man United baser let the stars score
- David De Gea got a red face when Manchester United fell to Barcelona
- The Spanish stop produced a howler in the first half when Lionel Messi shot
- De Gea jumped for the ball and let the ball slide under his body
- Half-time advertisements in the US showed that Messi steals chips from the keeper
Salt was rubbed in the wounds for David De Gea this week, after the Manchester United stop was inadvertently taunted by TV ads after his first half cry against Barcelona.
De Gea, considered by many to be the best goalkeeper in world football, let the ball slip under him after a pretty shot by Barca-talisman Lionel Messi.
The effort rolled gently into the back of the net as a result, giving the home team an early lead of 2-0 and compensating for anything but the elimination of United.

The Gea shows Messi a knowing look, before he seems discouraged by the action
The couple filmed the advertisement many months ago, although the half-time screening was ironic
What could be followed, however, were fans in hysteria, with half-time ads during coverage in the United States that happened to show a Lays ad that happened to contain De Gea and Messi.
The short clip, filmed many months ago, shows De Gea and Messi on a sofa next to a group of people waiting for a Champions League match to start.
He detects the opportunity to evade De Gea and steals and eats one of his Lays chips before lifting a cheeky grin to another spectator who sits between them.

The Gea therefore remains confused and angry about being humiliated by Messi … which coincidentally also reflects the mood fairly well.
Stateside football fans were quickly prepared to comment on the ironic display and immediately discovered the funny side of things.
& # 39; Die Walkers advertising with Messi and De Gea is now pretty ironic & # 39 ;, a fan commented.
& # 39; What happened in the ad should have stayed in the ad, very unsporting to Messi, & # 39; another supporter joked.
& # 39; He can't catch (a pause) & # 39; another added, referring to De Gea & # 39; s wrong way United fell apart in Catalonia.
With his two goals past De Gea on Tuesday evening – the first was a sublime curling effort – Messi took his Champions League level to 10 for the season.
The 31-year-old is now at the top of the goal standings on the European stage, with Robert Lewandowski in second place with eight and Cristiano Ronaldo in third place with six.
Ajax & # 39; s Dusan Tadic and Porto & # 39; s Moussa Marega also have six attacks to their name.
Barca is now moving on to the semi-final of the competition, where they are faced with Jurgen Klopp & Liverpool or Porto.
The Reds hold a 2-0 total lead towards the clash in the Estadio Do Dragao – the same stadium in which they won 5-0 last season.
