Pique hoping Barcelona's Champions League is as 'easy' as Madrid's

The Barcelona defender is known for sticking the knife into the club's great Spanish rivals, and he is hoping for as 'easy' a run to glory as Zinedine Zidane's men this year

When Gerard Pique revealed his favoured route for Barcelona to grab Champions League glory, it looked strangely familiar. 

Real Madrid took down Roma, Wolfsburg, Manchester City and Atletico Madrid in last year's knockout phase to take the title, enjoying a rather soft draw away from the heavyweights. 

And the Barcelona defender could not help drawing attention to that fact on Twitter. 

Pique was asked by a fan who his preference would be ahead of the upcoming Champions League draw. 

"An easy group. In the last 16, Italy's third place. In quarters, Germany's eighth place," he said. 

"In the semis, England's fourth place. The second leg always at home." 

While the defender is known for mocking Barcelona's bitter rivals, he surely wasn't implying they had an easy run to the title, was he?
