Barcelona star Lionel Messi clashed with Alvaro Arbeloa in the Real Madrid carpark last night, it has been revealed.Punto Pelota says the pair taunted eachother throughout the Copa del Rey semifinal first-leg, which had finished 1-1.

With the mixed zone leading out to the carpark, as Messi was making his way to the Barcelona team bus, he spotted Arbeloa in his car - with his wife - and again fired a couple of verbal volleys at the Real fullback.

Arbeloa hit back before Messi was led to the team bus by a Barca official.

Meanwhile, Real's locker room were unimpressed by Messi's behaviour during the match. At one stage, Messi, grounded after a tackle, ignored a helping hand offered by Xabi Alonso which angered Real's players.
