Ever been on Twitter and wondered if there was something that you could say which would garner 50,000 retweets and favourites? 

It's simple—why not just have a pop at Real Madrid when they win a last-minute (and somewhat doubtful) penalty?

It usually helps, admittedly, if you're Gerard Pique, one of the first-choice central defenders for Real's big rivals (and a Spain teammate to many of their players):

For the non-Spanish speakers amongst you, that translates to:

Watching a comedy film on Canal+ Liga channel. Always goes down well at this time of night!

Was Pepe fouled for a Real Madrid penalty last night?

The penalty could yet have a bearing on the season and the final standings—having conceded at the death, Real were staring at a 1-1 draw before the penalty (tucked away by Cristiano Ronaldo) gave them another two points.

But even more popular than Pique's tweet was that of Real Madrid defender Alvaro Arbeloa, who took to Twitter to have a little fun at Gerard's expense:

 And the translation:

Very happy with the three points! It makes me happy that some people are swapping the theatre for the cinema, that's always good!

Barcelona are top of La Liga with six wins from six. Atletico Madrid are in second place on goal difference, while Real are third, two points down and facing their city rivals at the weekend.
