Gerard Pique in sarcastic response to Zinedine Zidane's refusal to give Barcelona guard of honour: 'I'm not going to sleep tonight...'

Gerard Pique has dismissed Zinedine Zidane's claim that Real Madrid will not give Barcelona a guard of honour if they have won the La Liga title when the rivals meet in May.

Barca, who remain unbeaten in the league this season, may have become champions by the time the Clasico takes place.

Usually clubs applaud the champions onto the field before games. However Zidane says Real will not honour this because Barca did not applaud them onto the pitch in December, after his side won the Club World Cup.


However Barcelona defender Pique seemed unconcerned by Zidane's attitude when asked following their 3-1 win over Leganes on Saturday.

Pique told Spanish TV station Movistar Partidazo: 'I'm not going to sleep tonight', with a knowing smile on his face.

The win meant Barcelona matched the La Liga record of 38 consecutive games without defeat, however the Spain international wants them to maintain their current level of form.


Pique said: 'The all-time unbeaten record is the result of getting things right all season. We had a great first half and then eased off in the second. The important thing is that we are still comfortably poised at the top of the table.'

Barcelona are now 12 points clear of second placed Atletico Madrid thanks to their routine victory over Leganes.

Lionel Messi scored a hat-trick to secure three points - his 40th triple in Barcelona colours.
