Barcelona v Osasuna made for a dramatic game of football, featuring late goals, red cards and plenty of controversies.
Things got heated in the first half itself, as Osasuna found an early goal through David Garcia, one which faced plenty of protest from Barca players.
Their complaints stemmed from a supposed foul on Marcos Alonso leading up to the goal, and despite their arguments, the ref stood firm.
In fact, numerous 50/50 calls seemed to edge towards the home side, leaving Barcelona players on edge. Tensions escalated further in the 30th minute as Robert Lewandowski was given his marching orders by the ref after a foul on Garcia.
Barca fared a lot better in the second half and managed to score twice to take home all 3 points.
However, that did not end up being the story of the night, as all the post-match headlines went to Gerard Pique.
After a tearful farewell at Camp Nou earlier in the week, the 35-year-old travelled to Osasuna for his final game as a footballer.
Named on the substitutes bench, the defender was unlikely to feature on the pitch. But being a red-blooded Culer, he couldn’t help but be involved.
With literally nothing to lose, Pique stormed onto the pitch after the half-time whistle and decided to do something every player has dreamt about.
Give the referee a piece of his mind.
His confrontation with the official earned him a straight Red, so you can imagine that his words weren’t all too kind.
According to the reputable Sid Lowe, Pique’s last words as a Barcelona player were ‘I sh*t on your prostitute mother.’ Quite a mouthful.
The Spanish equivalent is ‘me cago en tu puta madre’, which certainly doesn’t add much in terms of eloquence, but at least it rolls off the tongue better.
Here’s a neat tidbit, for his offence, the Spaniard earned a 6-match ban, which cannot be enforced as he is now retired.
Pique going out like Zidane isn’t something we could’ve imagined, it’s Sergio Ramos’ turn now, and we expect big things.
