Real Madrid stars Cristiano Ronaldo, Alvaro Arbeloa, Keylor Navas and Marcelo have joked about what would happen if they tried to repeat Barcelona's controversial penalty from the weekend, in which Lionel Messi squared the ball for Luis Suarez to score.

The quartet were speaking at the Stadio Olimpico ahead of their Champions League tie with AS Roma on Wednesday, when they took a moment to contemplate how they'd go about pulling off such a spot-kick, per Sport

Marcelo: "Cris, Arbeloa will take it."

Ronaldo: "Arbeloa will take it and then finish it."

Arbeloa: "Wait and see, I'll do it!"

Ronaldo: "I'm sure Arbeloa will shoot." (Acts out a slip).

Navas: "The other way around, the other way around, Arbeloa will take it and pass to Cristiano."

Arbeloa: "That's it."

As much as we'd love to see them try, it's hard to see Ronaldo sharing his penalties anytime soon.
