Barcelona defender Pique sparks Twitter taunts with Real Madrid's Arbeloa

Real Madrid defender Alvaro Arbeloa has hit back at Barcelona defender Gerard Pique on Twitter. Pique mocked Real's defeat of Elche, which needed a penalty in the 96th minute to decide the result.

Pique tweeted: "Watching a great comedy on Canal + Liga.."

Arbeloa responded: "It's nice to see some people swapping the theatre for a bit of cinema."

The reference to Barcelona play-acting dates back to Jose Mourinho's jibe at Lionel Messi for "exaggerating" an Asier Del Horno foul.
