Microphones Picked Up Gerard Pique's Brutal Insult To Luis Suarez During Barca Vs. Atletico
| Last updated
The crucial top of the table clash between Barca and Atletico ended in a goalless draw - with Pique's exchange with Suarez one of the biggest takeaways from the La Liga match.
Suarez was up to his usual antics when he tried to win a penalty after forcing Marc-Andre ter Stegen into a save.
He fell dramatically onto the floor following minimal contact with the goalkeeper, who reacted angrily, shouting: "Luis!"

Pique came over and got involved, calling the Uruguayan forward "fatty" in a ruthless dig.
He said: "Come on, fatty, don't mess with us."
The Atletico star eventually got back to his feet and asked Ter Stegen: "Did you make contact or not?"
The German replied: "It was my hand. If it is my foot ok, but come on."
The draw at the Camp Nou leaves Atletico at the top of the league, two points ahead of second-placed Barca.
But Pique insists the title race is still alive with just three league games remaining.
"We have to focus on the last three games ... we still have [a chance]."

Speaking after game, he said: "We expected to win, but we are still alive. We had more chances and we competed well.
"We are alive, and based on how La Liga is playing out and I think we still have options.
"Anything can happen, because that is what happens in La Liga.
"It is true that Real Madrid, if they win all four games, will be champions, but it will be difficult.
"I think by winning our three remaining games we have options. Our idea is to win every game and compete until the end."
