Tensions boiled over between Pique and Nacho in the tunnel

As Real Madrid’s players left the Camp Nou tunnel to begin the second half of Sunday’s Clasico, there was a flashpoint as tensions boiled over between Gerard Pique and Nacho Fernandez.

The Los Blancos defender was approached by Pique, who said something to him behind his hand, which brought a furious reply from the academy graduate.

“How can you complain, if they have already dismissed us 17 times already?” he quizzed.

Sergio Ramos then played the uncharacteristic role of peacemaker as he spoke to several Barcelona players and officials before either team went back onto the pitch.
