Barcelona recorded a 2-0 win over Real Betis to remain at the top of the La Liga yesterday evening.
Arda Turan was included in t eh match day squad and come on as a substitute in the 86th minute.
We took a look at how social media reacted to the performance of Turan. The 29-year-old did not start for Barcelona but came on in place of Ivan Rakitic late in the second half.
The Turkish international received a mixed reception with the majority of fans questioning whether his talents are being wasted by spending the majority of matches on the bench,

Barcelona came out firing in the second half and the Croatia international Ivan Rakitic gave his side the lead in the 50th minute. Luis Suarez doubled his sides lead towards the end of the game to secure all three points for Luis Enrique’s side.
