And in an attempt to get even for the petition surrounding their idol Lionel Messi, Barca fans have tried to level the playing field.

In an altercation with Arturo Vidal, Mane appeared to raise his hands to the Chile international’s face.

But a portion of the Blaugrana fanbase, led by Mehrullah Baloch, want him banned for the second leg. On website Change.Org, Baloch wrote: “Sadio Mane should get a ban for the second leg of Semi-finals as he slapped Arturo Vidal for no reason!”

Replays appear to show Messi jumping into Fabinho

The official document comes in response to Reds supporters calling for Barca captain Lionel Messi to be banned for ‘punching’ Fabinho.

Shortly before whipping a delicious 35-yard free-kick into the top corner past Alisson, the Argentine appeared to lift a raised fist in the direction of the midfielder.

Incredibly, one supporter created a petition again on Change.Org titled: “Get Messi a retrospective ban for clearly punching Fabinho in the head.”

As it stands, the petition has reached more than 11,000 signatures.

But Barca fans have made sure their voice is also heard ahead of the return leg at Anfield.

The Reds are set to be without Roberto Firmino for the visit of La Liga champions, but Mohamed Salah is likely to be fit after a sickening collision with Martin Dubravka.
