Pau Gasol took in a championship soccer match in Barcelona, Spain, on Wednesday.

FC Barcelona drew with Atletico Madrid, 0-0, but won the Spanish Super Cup on the away goals tiebreaker.

Gasol's tweet caught the attention of Kobe Bryant, currently rehabbing his Achilles' tendon in Los Angeles.

Bryant is a noted soccer fan (along with fellow Lakers Steve Nash and Gasol). His comment translates to "Barca! Champion of Super Cup!!"

Barca is a nickname for FC Barcelona.

The Lakers start camp in less than a month. Opening night is Oct. 29 at Staples Center against the Clippers.
