No matter what the competition, arch-rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona will always try to outdo each other. ย ย 

This time itโ€™s a war on Facebook as both sides raced to become the first football team to reach 100 million likes on Facebook.

Real Madrid came through victorious but not without itโ€™s usual controversy.

DESPERATE DMโ€™s

Fearful of losing the Facebook war, Barcelonaโ€™s social media team took to Twitter to get in direct contact with their fans.

Despite all desperation, it wasnโ€™t to be for the Catalans, falling short to Los Blancos withย 99.8 million likes.
