Gerard Pique asked Barca staff members to give guard of honour as Real Madrid snubbed
Real Madrid refused to give a guard of honour in the El Clasico to the league champions FC Barcelona on Sunday but Barca defender Gerard Pique asked the club staff to perform the tradition.
Recently, Madrid's coach Zinedine Zidane mentioned very clearly that Real Madrid will not give La Liga champions Barcelona a guard of honour when the sides meet in El Clasico.
While interacting with media, Barcelona defender Gerard Pique said, "As we are a family, and they didn't want to give us a guard of honour, I have asked our staff to make one, with that we are leaving."

In a very intriguing clash, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi scored at the 10th and 52nd minute respectively to help Barca in continuing its winning streak.
