Pro-regime social media pages and accounts shared news titled "Barcelona and Real Madrid players congratulate Syrian national team" saying that players from both teams were impressed and announced solidarity with "Syrian national team" after its game with Australian team in Asia qualification for world cup. 

News publishers said Real Madrid and Spanish team player Marco Assensio published on twitter saying "congratulations to the Syrian team... you are not alone and we are with you".

They also said FC Barcelona and French team player Osman Dembele congratulated the Syrian team too. 

Verify-Sy searched for the official accounts of both players on Facebook and Twitter and turns out they didn't mention Syrian team at all. 

During the search turns out the alleged posts were published on unofficial pages with the players' names.
