Gerard Pique again takes aim at Real Madrid

Gerard Pique has taken a cheeky swipe at Real Madrid during a Twitter question and answer session.

Asked about his preferences for Thursday's Champions League draw, the Barça central defender responded:

"An easy group. The third-placed side from Italy in the last 16, the eighth-placed team from Germany in the quarter-finals, the team that finished fourth from England in the semi-finals, and the return legs all at home."

Last season, Champions League winners Real Madrid faced this exact route on their way to the final at the San Siro.

Following qualification from a group containing PSG, Shakhtar Donetsk and Malmo, they faced Roma, Wolfsburg and Manchester City in the knockout stage. They played every second-leg at home.

In the final, 'Los Blancos' defeated Atletico Madrid on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

FC Barcelona defeated Arsenal in the last 16, before falling to Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals.

Atletico then had to overcome Bayern Munich before reaching the Milan final.

Pique is known for his digs at Real Madrid, and this latest comment will no doubt again incite the ire of their fanbase.
