After inviting followers to ask him questions with the hashtag #askPique, one fan enquired about his preferences for the Champions League draw which takes place on Thursday. Pique, who’s been known to throw a taunt or two at Real Madrid through social media, didn’t hesitate in responding with a thinly-veiled gibe at Barcelona’s major rival.

“Easy Group. Second Round v 3rd best Italian team, Quarters against 8th best German team, Semis against 4th best English team. Second-leg always at home,” mocked Pique in his tweet.
