Pique mocking of Real Madrid match referee: "Watching comedy at night .. Is good!"

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique stoked the blaze of his sides rivalry with Real Madrid after branding the refereeing in Madrids 2-1 victory over Elche a comedy.

The Spain international was watching los Blancos take on the newly promoted side in a match that appeared to be heading for a shock draw. 

That is until experienced referee Cesar Muniz awarded Carlo Ancelottis side a hugely debatable spot kick in the 96th and final minute of the match.

Unsurprisingly, Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo tucked away the resultant penalty to hand the visitors an undeserved 2-1 win after having earlier opening the scoring himself in the second half with a now trademark long-range free kick, and the win kept the Spanish giants just two points behind early pace-setters Barcelona and Atletico Madrid at the top of the table.

However, Barca middle-back Pique was clearly not convinced either about Munizs decision to award Madrid their late penalty, with the Spaniard immediately tweeting to his many thousands of followers: Watching a good comedy on Canal + Liga.

And within hours, the 26-year-olds message had then been retweeted 45,000 times, once again causing a huge storm in Spain, as Madrid full-back Alvaro Arbeloa responded to his compatriots jibe by saying: Its friendly to see some people swapping the theatre for a bit of cinema.
