Gerard Pique told the Barcelona defence to ‘calm’ while playing Inter player onside, he then scored

Gerard Pique just told the Barcelona defence to ‘stay calm’ – while Nicolo Barella ghosted in behind all of them to equalise for Inter Milan.

Xavi’s side entered this evening’s Champions League Group C game knowing a defeat and Bayern Munich earning a point against Victoria Plzen would see them eliminated from the competition.

Ousmane Dembele gave them a lead just before halftime, but Inter got back into the game in bizarre fashion.

Alessandro Bastoni whipped in a harmless ball which Pique gestured his backline to step up for.

However, Barella beat the offside trap and fired home to make it 1-1.

Lautaro Martinez then put Simone Inzaghi’s side 2-1 up and Barcelona are currently crashing out of the tournament.

Fans have reacted to the mistake, claiming Pique has given birth to a new meme.

One person commented: “Pique was like ‘let them score bro’ oh my days.”

Another said: “Life comes at you fast.”

A third tweeted: “He has to retire after this I can’t take much more.”

While someone put: “We apologise to every Madrid fan for comparing Pique to Sergio Ramos.”
