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.
Grupo fácil. Octavos el 3º de Italia, Cuartos el 8º de Alemania, Semis el 4º de Inglaterra. Vuelta siempre en casa. https://t.co/6EW7hWmeGd— Gerard Piqué (@3gerardpique) 24 de agosto de 2016
"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?
