Gerard Piquet and Alvaro Arbeloa review the night’s TV

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique tweeted a rather sarcastic message just as Real Madrid won a pretty questionable late penalty at Elche, which Cristiano Ronaldo converted to give Madrid the late win.

Pique tweeted: “Watching a comedy on Canal+, they’re always good at this time of night!”

 

Within hours, though, Real defender was on his phone, tweeting “Happy with the 3 points! I’m delighted some people have changed the theatre for the cinema!”

This was a reference to Barcelona’s infamous theatrics and in particular the propensity of some of their players to dive.

Here’s the penalty incident in question.
